kids books about New York City

October 29, 2012

My brothers live in New York City and with Hurricane Sandy about to hit them, I thought I'd share a few New York books that we've been enjoying lately!


Next Stop Grand Central
The illustrations are fantastic and really give a good view of the city--to me, it just seems very New York. We loved this one.



What's Up, Bear?: A Book About Opposites
This book combines a story with the concept of opposites in a way I haven't seen done before. I love opposite books, but they generally don't tell a story. This one really does. It also throws in a nice tour of  New York City with all the famous landmarks and sites. Because it does so much, it works for Juliet my kindergardener and my two year old Lucia. We've been enjoying this one a lot this week. It would be a perfect prep book before taking a trip to NYC.



This Is New York
I haven't read this one yet (sadly, our library only has the Paris one in this series--which is wonderfully amazing), but it is on my wishlist! I love the art and the way these books are put together.

Do you have any favorite New York City books? Anyone in the hurricane's path? Stay safe!

(I received What's Up Bear? as a review copy. The opinions expressed are entirely my own.)
