Picture books are not just for little children. Readers of all ages can see how one picture can be worth 1,000 words as they explore some of Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas and Asia’s most famous ones. Visual images, fun facts, historical background and more capture the imagination. Non-fiction makes real places like New York and San Fransisco in America and more exotic ones like St. Petersburg and Dubai come alive.
