nyc #4

There are several NYC versions of the alphabet, I'm including two in my favorite New York City books for kids this week. The first is New York, New York! The Big Apple from A to Z by Laura Krauss Melmed and Frane Lessac.

I love the folk art inspired illustrations, and the A through Z format (great for preschoolers). A is for the American Museum of Natural History, B is for the Brooklyn Bridge, C is for Central Park, etc. Each page has a little poem and some fun facts.

E is for the Empire State Building (which is struck by lightning about 100 times a year!)

S is for the Statue of Liberty (did you know that the sculptor Auguste Bartholdi modeled the Statue of Liberty's face after his mother's?)

T is for Times Square.. this book makes me miss New York all over again!
