A young girl's exploration of the city she loves.A young girl and her father spend a day in the city, her city, traveling to the places they go together. As they do, the girl, who is visually impaired, describes what she senses in delightfully precise, poetic detail. Her city, she says, "pitters and patters, and drips and drains." It's both "smelly" and "sweet." Her city also speaks, as it "dings and dongs and rattles and roars." And sometimes, maybe even some of the best times, it just listens.

A celebration of all there is to appreciate in our surroundings—just by paying attention!
