Make way for a Journey Around San Francisco! A friendly pelican guides explorers of all ages on a beautiful tour of the city, pointing out intriguing sights and fascinating history along the way. Ride a cable car. Cross the Golden Gate Bridge. Explore Alcatraz, the Presidio, and Muir Woods. Learn about San Francisco's diverse population and rich cultural life. A journey awaits on every page. Like other titles in the series that visit Boston, New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and more, these ""Journeys"" are much more than alphabet books. They are family treasures to be appreciated at several levels. The lovely, whimsical art is a treat for the youngest lap-reader. Each of the A-to-Z pages is headed with a clever alliterative sentence (""Fog floats in frequently""). A page's theme is developed in a paragraph of meticulously researched history, enhanced by playful trivia at the bottom of the page. There's a pelican on every page, too, sometimes in disguise!
