This is Paris by Miroslav Sasek

With a minimum of words and a maximum of illustrations, This is Paris captures the magic of mankind's capital city - New York Times. The first in the series of This is books,This is Paris is a delightful tour of 1950s Paris from a child's eye view.A three-week vacation in Paris gave Sasek the idea for writing travel books for children, and originally he only intended to produce three books in the series: This is Paris, This is London and This is Rome. He noticed that parents in families of tourists tended to stay absorbed in their surroundings. Feeling these young people deserved to know about the things they could or would be seeing, Sasek created This is Paris in 1959. Format: Hardback
