Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Peg Glisson
Famous landmarks, yummy food, playful toys and more, help youngsters count their way around New York City. Black-and-white photos of a wide variety of subjects illustrate each number; Dugan mixes single shots of multiple items, e.g., 2 library lions, 4 sailboats in Central Park, 7 firefighters' helmets held by 7 children, and 17 bagels, with galleries of 5 bridges, 12 clocks, 15 wheels, 20 pets, The numeral itself is in color, captured on signs, buildings, trains, and more. Simple captions encourage closer looks and invite comparisons with a child's own surroundings. A comprehensive location list, of both the numerals and items photographed, complete this well-thought-out book that celebrates the hustle, bustle, and diversity of arguably our country's premier city. A striking addition.
