What Kids Say about Living in San Francisco

2020 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Juvenile Nonfiction (Children's)

Katie Burke interviews fifty children, ages five to nine, who live in San Francisco. In each conversation, she explores one of ten different themes―family, school, pets, vacation, work, heroes, holidays, favorite foods, talents, and sports―followed by insights on the topic. She rounds out each segment with five questions for adults and kids to discuss after they’ve read it together, encouraging open, honest dialogue about young readers’ thoughts on the subject matter at hand.
