This was and still remains my favorite childhood book. It is less of a narrative as it is a description of ships and operations in a big city port for a child's level of comprehension. Certainly not a book for everyone's interest but if your child loves big machines or finds industry interesting Big City Port belongs on their reading list. The illustrations are what captured me as the relation between different types of intermodal transport are illustrated wonderfully with an interesting use of perspective. Also worth mentioning is the day flows from morning to night throughout the pages in a subtle transition which makes it a nice bedtime book. Worth a look!
