The urban scene unfolds in City Signs by Zoran Milich, through 30 artistic photographs-a police car, school bus and construction site among them-all framed by wide white borders. The only text appears on the vehicles and signs. Carefully choreographed spreads teach themes or concepts, whether featuring a red car under an "enter" sign and another at an "exit" or a spread of pizza and ice cream vendors.

In Zoran Milich's second picture book, thirty colourful camera shots illustrate how letters, symbols, shapes, and colours communicate important information. Framed by wide white borders, Milich’s city photos cover all the bases. They capture street, park, pool, and beach signs. They include emergency and other transportation vehicles, as well as storefront, directional, and cautionary signage. The signs appear on buildings, posts, windows, containers, booths, fences, and even people.

This attractive early learning and reading resource focuses on early childhood and family literacy. It contains much opportunity to seek out letters, shapes, and colours that appear on more than one page and to watch for the real life signs during walks and drives.
