What Kids Say About
Living in San Francisco
In Urban Playground: What Kids Say About Living in San Francisco, fifty San Francisco kids, ages five to nine at the time of their interviews, tell readers about their lives in San Francisco, through the lens of ten themes: family, food, heroes, holidays, pets, school, sports, talents, vacations, and work.
In these pages, San Francisco kids reveal everything from who lives at home with them to their career aspirations. They also share what thrills them about living in the city and what they think the bummers are.
I wrote Urban Playground: What Kids Say About Living in San Francisco because I love hearing what kids have to say about the city I share with them.
I continue interviewing children in other cities because the perspectives of kids in urban centers fascinate me. These kids keep me laughing and thinking, and they really touch my heart.
