"Elisa Parhad and Alexander Vidal both obviously love Los Angeles; it is evident in every word and image in this rhyming board book of sights to see in LA.

Parhad lists 19 things associated with the City of Angels, using rhyming couplets. Each phrase is 3-4 syllables long, with the closing lines longer. Whether it's at the beach, people you can see, places to visit, places to eat, each cultural detail is iconic to the region.

Vidal's stylized, flat artwork brings the text to life. Endsheets show a contemporary house, a mission-style house, a bungalo and a tudor in the daylight (front of book) and at night (back of book) and set the tone for a whirlwind tour of LA. Opening with a picture of a woolly mammoth stuck in one of the La Brea Tar Pits, Vidal treats armchair readers to views of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, an orange grove, the highway from Pasadena to LA, Griffith Observatory, LAX Airport, Pann's Diner, a California mission and the Hollywood sign, among other things. His color palette is intriguing, with each hue selected a sun-faded version of a brighter color.

Fun to read, fun to enjoy and will spur others to head west to see for themselves!
