My City is Oakland by Kamaria Lofton
"My City is Oakland" is a real love letter to the kid-friendly landmarks of Oakland, California — including Children's Fairyland!
It's the debut book in the Kids love Oakland! series by city native and Turn the Page! children's book festival author Kamaria Lofton, and is beautifully illustrated by local artist Steven Anderson.
Children's Fairyland has been an Oakland institution since 1950. This is where kids and grown children alike explore its refreshingly low-tech landscape of Storybook sets and playgrounds, tunnels, and mazes. Parents know to check out the magical pumpkin of coffee post haste upon entry, and not to miss the puppet show, the live animals, the Jolley Trolley, and the Wonderland Tunnel. And of course, you must buy a Magic Key to unlock the stories of years past.
