With this book we'll have a good time discovering together the city and its places, and things we do in each place. Thus, young readers learn about new places and learn with us a lot about where they live or where they go from time to time, if they live outside the city. In this book, each double page recreates the scene where we discover our city buildings as well as the activities we do in them and all that we can find there. The child will identify them with the help of an adult, learn what is done at each place, how to behave there and much more.

Each one of the eight books in this collection shows in a simple and funny way objects, actions and places that are familiar to the children, stimulating their curiosity and observation skills while playing with sounds and letters. The structure of all the books is based on the scene display provided by impressive double-page illustrations where we must identify the "few" words proposed. It also raises a simple and funny question that the child alone or with the help of an adult could answer and challenges him or her to find the hidden object, person or animal.
