From bestselling duo Laura Krauss Melmed and Frané Lessac comes an alphabetical picture book tour of one of the greatest cities in the world, New York!

Welcome to the Big Apple! This city has something to offer everyone, from A to Z. Come visit the American Museum of Natural History and see prehistoric animals, get a bird's-eye view of the Brooklyn Bridge, and check out Central Park.

Fascinating details about the many neighborhoods and historic places of New York City accompany Melmed's lively, informative verse, and Lessac's vibrant folk-art paintings capture the essence of this unique and rich place that was once called the melting pot of America.

Love this book. The illustrations are great, all of the highlights of NYC are covered! Plan this as a gift for a friend's 13 year old granddaughter who both went to NYC together, as a visual reminder of all of the fun they had.......much more entertaining than pictures they didn't have time to take and since they went in the cold, snowy weather, it will be a nice visual of a different climate in NYC. Thanks for a wonderful book!
We bought this book before taking our preschooler to NYC for the first time. We read it on the plane (long flight) and then decided what sights to focus on. Every night, we'd look through the book again and go over what we'd seen that day and what was on the schedule for the next day. It was a great way to help set expectations for our little one.

Some of the choices for the letters are not the most obvious, but it's all well done and works fine.
We bought this book a few months before our 5 y/o son's first trip to NYC - and read it nearly every night! It was so much fun for him to find all the places in the book on our map of the city and in our travels. Highly recommend for kiddoes leading up to a visit - or any time!
This is a great book! The illustrations are wonderful and the information is cool without being overly written. The book is also well made, sturdy and will surely be a favorite in our house.
Beautifully illustrated (as an adult I was quite mesmerized by them too!), and cleverly executed to follow A-Z. The book is also full of interesting little facts - a great book for children. I bought it as a present for some friends' children (aged 6) to introduce them to New York (where my partner and I live), and loved it so much that I will be buying another copy as a memento for my nephews (aged 9 and 6) who have just visited the city and many of the places in the book - here's hoping it keeps the memory fresh for them, and gives them more to look forward to in the future.
Great informational book for my younger grandson!!

My 5 year old and I love reading this fun ABC book all about NYC. He enjoys seeing the places we have been and have learning of a few more spots we would like to visit together.
Hits a lot of good highlights with memorable facts and simple (though in a few cases strained) rhymes. Helps get kids excited for NY trip and helps them remember after.
