Acclaimed author and photographer April Pulley Sayre explores the basic STEAM concepts that are always just around the corner with striking photographs and a lyrical, layered text. Cityscape celebrates the science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics of urban life.

April Pulley Sayre has turned her keen photographic eye to the art and architecture that fills every city. Stunning photographs illuminate basic STEAM concepts such as geometry (lines, angles, and shapes), transportation, power, building, construction, balance, and community, while also celebrating the beauty, diversity, and magic of human creativity and the written word.

This informational picture book features a rich, read-aloud text, remarkable full-color photographs, and excellent backmatter. Cityscape is an ideal resource for teaching how art, science, and design intersect and an accessible, awe-inspiring choice for story time.
