Balboa Park: A to Z
Written by Jennifer G Lanzrath and illustrated by Joy Raab
Balboa Park: A to Z sprang from the mind of two talented, young San Diego mothers who wished to share the colorful Park they know and love, with other children like their sons who never tire of going there.
Balboa Park: A to Z can be read to preschoolers who will delight in the drawings, while an older child, parent or grandparent can delve into the history of the place. In other words, just like the Park it describes and illustrates, “A to Z” has something for everyone!
Balboa Park offers something for everyone… but especially for children. It is a magical place with fairy-tale architecture, the world-famous San Diego Zoo and gardens galore. One has giant palm trees and plants that eat bugs, while another attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. In the imagination of a small child unable to see over its hedges, one formal garden even turns into a maze.
A puppet theater, a classic carousel and one of the world’s largest musical instruments, all reside in the heart of America’s greatest urban park. Balboa Park: A to Z can be read to preschoolers who will delight in the charming drawings, while an older child, parent or grandparent can delve into the colorful history of the place. The descriptions large and small bring the Park’s hidden secrets to life for all ages. Soft cover.
