Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Doodle New York is the perfect companion to the new explorer/visitor to the Big Apple. Doodle New York has just the right combination of suggested line imagery and inviting blank paper space, just waiting to be filled with your very own unique doodlings and imaginings. Doodle New York is also an excellent way to imprint memories and create significant souvenir experiences." —midwestbookreview.com

"I love Doodle New York for the big kid set. Kids are invited to express their artistic side by 'drawing their way through New York.' Drawings are begun and your child does the rest." —www.BabyMeetsCity.com

"Inspire your little artist with the travel-size (it easily fits in your purse) Doodle New York." —NY Metro Parents newspaper (November 21, 2012)

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
Part coloring book, part tour guide, part my-kids-need-something-to-do, Doodle New York offers pages and pages of doodling fun. Featuring iconic New York symbols like the subway, the New York skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and even the ubiquitous pedi-cab, this doodle books gives young readers a taste for the Big Apple. Two page spreads encourage young artists to draw a favorite Broadway show, finish the dinosaur skeleton seen at the American Museum of Natural History, fill a subway car with riders, and sketch a city bus. Five Doodle Challenges scattered throughout the book offer opportunities to stretch both creativity and skills. Fun facts alongside the doodle pages offer tidbits of New York history as well as invitations for things to do while visiting the city. QR codes appear on several pages, offering even more interactivity and extending the doodling experience beyond the page with downloadable illustrations created by kid-artist Graham Fruisen. Lemay's illustrations are inviting, begging to be finished, and Puck's straightforward text conveys the energy and excitement of New York City. Young readers and their parents are sure to be in a New York state of mind after a few minutes with this book! Reviewer: Leah Hanson
