I love this book, so do my kids. The illustrations are just gorgeous and amazing. My son had found it at the library and when it was time to return it, I knew I had to have a copy for our book collection at home. It's definitely a favorite of ours now.
I saw a sample copy of this book at JFK Airport, but they were sold out. Thankfully B & N on line is not! If you love NYC....buy this book just to relive so many special aspects of the Big Apple. It is definitely for adults to enjoy as well as children.
I bought an earlier edition of this wonderful book for my grandson a few years ago and we love it so much I just purchased another one for my neice. We live in New Jersey and my Grandson and I love to visit New York City. The beautiful illustrations in this book have inspired us to visit many of the sites depicted and we have so far covered about 80%. We have become fans of artist/author Kathy Jakobsen and hope to visit her gallery next trip to THE CITY. It's a great homage to New York City from a child's point of view.
This is a great book that shows many landmarks in NYC. I would recommend it for anyone trying to teach primary children about New York City.
We bought this book for our preschoolers, in preparation for a trip to NYC this fall. They absolutely love it, and so do we. They've spent hours poring over the incredible illustrations, picking out the smallest details. (Can you find the cat that appears in each scene?) I've recommended this to many friends, for all ages.
