City By Numbers
by Stephen Johnson

City by Numbers is AWESOME!  We can't say enough good things about this book.  It's every bit as stunning as the author's Caldecott winning Alphabet City, and features the same style of highly realistic paintings, only this time it's the numerals 1-21 that are depicted in various common city scenes.

Each illustrations depicts one number that has been 'created' by items and landscapes commonly found in large American cities (like NYC, which this book is based on).  The cover image is a perfect example -- two adjacent trash cans just happen to form the number 8!

Johnson's illustrations are so "photo-realistic" you'll have to continually remind yourself that it is indeed a painting, not a photograph. And, extra benefit...Kids will love 'finding' the number in each landscape, and once they see this book, they'll be looking for numbers all over the place. :)
