If there’s anything city dwellers love, it’s our views, so urban families can’t help but appreciate Gianna Marino’s new book about Rabbit and Owl, who vie for light and scenery. In “Too Tall Houses” (Viking), Owl and Rabbit find themselves in a race to build the highest home after Rabbit’s corn obscures Owl’s view, and the angry bird’s counter-attack shades Rabbit’s garden. By putting their own needs before each other’s, the animals create towers that are hilariously lofty. Recommended for children ages 3–5, “Too Tall Houses” is as well written as it is beautifully illustrated.

“Too Tall Houses” by Gianna Marino, $16.99, www.barnesandnoble.com.
