What makes it really cool though is the way the the photos make you see the world outside.

123 NYC is lush; it makes for a perfect gift for any child with an interest in the city, in art or with an inquisitive nature.

I bought this colorful, educational book for my first grandchild....and it's great! Not only are the photographs unique to New York City, but all of them are identified at the end of the book. My plan is to take Olivia to "find" the numbers when she gets a little older!

Joanne Dugan's beautiful photographs of New York City make her two children's books "123 NYC" and "ABC NYC" original and wonderful reading material for children of varying ages. For my 4 year old, the book is great for number and letter recognition and amusing photographs of things she can relate to. However, my older daughters, ages 9 and 11, love to page through these magical books guessing which parts of New York the photos come from and recognizing landmarks they are familiar with. I have bought these books on numerous occasions for presents as I have found them to be the perfect "New York City gift."

The premise of this book really is clever, there are photos of real numbers in New York City and commonplace New Yorky objects right beside them (I especially liked the picture of 3 kids eating black and white cookies) for your child to count. What makes it really cool though is the way the the photos make you see the world outside. After reading it (well more like sitting with my daughter while she did it) I kept looking at every number that we passed on the street in a totally different way.

Bought for my grandson and neither he nor I liked it for various reasons. It didn't label pictures with what they are, i.e. name of bridges, and just other non interesting subjects just to fill the higher numbers especially.

This is a great alternative to traditional counting books. It's super cute and creative. It would be great for a kid in the city because it's the things they would see every day. And it would also be great for suburban kids because it gives a different perspective.

I loved the book especially because my child was featured in the book she was the little girl on the letter "H" page eating a hot dog!!! Beautiful pictures and it was a great way to represent NYC well done Mrs.Dugan and Mrs.Pamela Hovland.

I bought this book after I saw it at a local bookstore. It just took one reading for my son to love it. He liked it so much I had to get him ABC NYC too. I have also bought them for several friends.
The premise of both books is simple. City kids see a different world and have to develop a different visual vocabulary. The books reflect what they see day to day and relates to counting and the alphabet. They also allow you to use your imagination and use them in many ways. For example, if you are in 6th Av and 56th St, you can ask the kids how many of the book's sculptures they see. It is a nice way to get to see and know the city all over again.
