Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviews for Ogintz's previous books:

From The New York Times:
Families of children who enjoy reading may find what they need in...guidebooks by Eileen Ogintz.... The tone of voice, so hard to get right, is on target.

From Parenting:
Eileen Ogintz's travel-guide series Taking the Kids has a cure for backseat critics who complain about boring family vacations. . . . Parents can read aloud from one of the guides while mapping out travel routes, or let confident young readers study it on their own.

From USA Today:
Ogintz wants to tell kids that traveling with their parents can be fun.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We recently visited Manhattan and used this book (among others). It was well written and informative. It covered highlights rather than being comprehensive, but we did get good information. Chapters cover: NYC's neighborhoods, Times Square, must-see sights, museums, parks and zoos, cultural venues, sports, Ellis Island, Ground Zero, eating and shopping. Easy to read print and boldface information make the guide easy to use, and tips often include web addresses, which was handy. Nice guide.

Whether you want to go to a Yankees game in the summer or skate at Rockefeller Center in the winter, you'll find great leads in this portable book. New York City can be overwhelming, but this guidebook is accessible, handy, inspiring, and fun. There's even room for your kids to write down their impressions.

I bought this as a present for my twelve year old grandson who I am taking to New York this summer. I think he will enjoy reading it and learn a lot about New York. It's definitely geared toward kids and has a lot of good information about New York that I did not know. I will rate it again after he reads it.

We read this with our 6 year old and he was very interested. However, it has some weird recommendations on where to go so we didn't get through all of it. Overall a good read for kids, but you should probably buy a real guidebook on what you want to see and then just read those sections in this book.
