Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Reviews for Ogintz's previous books:

From The New York Times:
Families of children who enjoy reading may find what they need in...guidebooks by Eileen Ogintz.... The tone of voice, so hard to get right, is on target.

From Parenting:
Eileen Ogintz's travel-guide series Taking the Kids has a cure for backseat critics who complain about boring family vacations. . . . Parents can read aloud from one of the guides while mapping out travel routes, or let confident young readers study it on their own.

Ogintz wants to tell kids that traveling with their parents can be fun.

Food Smarts
A lot of kids who come to New York City try food they haven't eaten at home. Check off what you've tried:
--A hot dog from a street vendor
--A hot salted pretzel or roasted nuts from a street vendor
--A slice of pizza folded in half (that's the way New Yorkers eat it)
--A pastrami sandwich
--A fresh bagel with a schmear (of cream cheese)
--Chinatown noodles or rice with chopsticks
