Busy city! Beep, beep, beep!
Jacob Lawrence's exuberant artwork guides readers through a bustling city, complete with builders rat-a-tatting and children playing in the streets. With rhythmic text and 11 iconic paintings, this book is both an introduction to an influential artist and a celebration of city life.
Susan Goldman Rubin grew up in the Bronx and dreamed of becoming an artist. As a young woman, she studied painting and drawing and began to show her work in galleries. Now she lives in Malibu, California, where she writes and teaches writing, and continues to paint.
