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.

From USA Today:
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
