We recognize the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island,  a Dragon Dance in Chinatown and a Pride Parade by City Hall, sea lions at Pier 39, cable cars and colorful Victorian townhouses.  The board book captures and celebrates people's  different styles, ethnicities, and identities with a sense of joy.  The end of the book gives factual descriptions of the different places and items featured (Lombard Street, the Ferry Building, Chinatown, City Hall, Pier 39, Cliff House, the Painted Ladies, Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge).
