Texts and Tunes: This Is San Francisco

Of all the classic children's books, Miroslav Sasek's ($12) hardcover treats are my favorite.

The practically antique texts have vintage illustrations adding some art deco to baby's library.

Aside from teaching your lil one about the ABC's, these books actually divulge loads of rich information about each locale.

This is San Francisco tells the tale of the earthquake ravaged city and its touristy charm while This is New York rattles on about the architecture of the immigrant city. Copious artwork and advanced literature make these books the kind tots can be entertained by for ages.
