Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Rife
As soon as the sun is up one morning, the little boy in this children's book is off and running around New York with his parents. Throughout the book, he visits some of the most popular sites, such as Central Park, Soho, the Empire State Building, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He eats bagels, visits a local deli for a sandwich, and even gets some ice cream on Bleeker Street. His visit gives the reader a good introduction to the top spots in the city. Using rhyming couplets, Chronicle Books presents an entertaining guide to the Big Apple from the viewpoint of a child. This illustrated book not only entertains, but teaches the reader what it is like to visit New York City. To accompany the text, Jenkins creates colorful and eye-catching illustrations that provide a plethora of things to engage a young reader's curiosity. The pictures give young readers a lot to look at while their parents read them the book. Reviewer: Melissa Rife
Kirkus Reviews
This frenzied stroller-level dash through the Big Apple is likely to leave even hardened tourists exhausted. "The sun is up in N-Y-C. / Come and see the sights with me!" invites a tyke, done up in a retro cartoon style with eyes and mouth open wide. Jenkins wheels tour guide and viewers through "The Met," catches a bus "downtown" to a deli, pops over to Times Square for a Lion King (unnamed but easily identifiable) matinee and a visit to the Empire State Building, then it's "Taxi, taxi! Go, GO, GO! / Time for dinner in Soho!" Simultaneously published, San Francisco, Baby! trucks another hyped-up toddler from "the Wharf" to "the Haight" past a few recognizable landmarks. Along with forcing rhymes and cadences, the nameless author shoehorns abbreviated references to sights and neighborhoods into the commentary that will mean little to nonresidents, particularly since neither volume includes a map to give the itineraries some coherence. Too slight to serve either as guides for newbies or alternatives to keepsake/tributes like Robert Neubecker's Wow! City! (2004) or M. Sasek's This Is San Francisco (updated edition 2003). (Picture book. 3-5)
