Vivid poems and illustrations describe an alphabet of places special to children. The book journeys from art room to zoo, with stops along the way at an ice cream caf?, a science museum, a library, a jungle gym, the ocean, and more. Children explore memories, imagine places they would like to go, and realize their world is expanding. Written in verse with an appealing variety of rhymes and rhythms, Places will touch both children and adults, who may remember favorite places of their own.
