    Great Gift

    This book is great to give as a gift. My niece lives far away from NYC and I gave it to her to see where her aunt lives. She loves it and asks to read it all the time. I highly recommend it.

    Best counting book

    I was so excited when I found these books! They are perfect for my little nephew and when my 4 month old gets older, they will definitely be a part of his library. The illustrations are amazing and we are learning a new language as well! I hope they do all of the states. Nice layout too! Sounds Funny is great too. These are a must have for all kids learning how to count and about sounds!

    My daughter and husband love this book!

    My 28 month-old daughter loves this book. She likes the bright colors and simple illustrations, especially the purple subway trains. Even better, my husband enjoys reading the book with her. He is a proud New Yorker that gets a kick out of seeing his favorite things in the city in the book.
