Through clear, engaging text and lively illustrations, discover the rise of cities and how their infrastructure, government, and environmental systems work today.

For middle-grade readers always wondering why and how things work, cities provide an endless source of curiosity. Why did cities start appearing in the first place, or become what we know today? How do urban planners know where to place fire stations, schools, and parks? What’s a water tower and how does it fill the pipes of thousands of people? How about roads and highways, phone lines and energy, water treatment and waste?

Today, 55% of the global population is urban, and that number is only growing. In I Love My City, readers explore the history, geography, demography, technology, infrastructure, and government of cities, with fascinating facts about specific urban centres around the world. A particular focus on ecology, green energy, and environmental planning moves readers forward to consider what sustainable development might look like in the future as well. This nonfiction STEAM title, ideal for civics and social studies units, includes a table of contents, a glossary, and a list of resources for further research. Written by children’s author France Demarais and municipal administrator Richard Adam, with lively full-color illustrations from Yves Dumont, I Love My City is a captivating resource for the library, classroom, or home.
