Grade: K+Genre: InformationalThemes: Immigration, city lifeBuilding Manhattan comes as a welcome vehicle for teaching young children how the United States became populated. The book takes the reader on a simple explanation of how Manhattan became the city as we know it today. It is a picture book that older students can begin understanding how the city was shaped. I used this book for an introductory explanation to immigration during social studies class when we were discovering how the United States became populated. The illustrations are colorful and add great detail to the story.
