    I loved the concept the personification of many American cities with an explanation of their names linguistic origins, but I felt the text sadly lacked in fluidity It isn t an easy read aloud, thought New York throwing a party for the other cities is humorous This could still...

    Fiction, yet with non fiction concepts I never knew I could be so interested in the origin of city names I just wish there was a bibliography or some type of informational page at the end of the book to help students do further research on the city names.
