Editorial Reviews

Review

"A vibrant counting book exploring the city through its rich numerical iconography." - Brainpickings

So I love the fresh take on counting in photographer Joanne Dugan's 123 NYC: A Counting Book of New York City, a follow-up to her ABC book (featured on CMP last Spring.) Bold, colorful digits uncovered around the boroughs accompany stunning black and white photos portraying fresh concepts like 3 children devouring black and white cookies, 9 local sculptures, or 13 fish on ice in Chinatown. Little kids will love the charming, kid-friendly photos, while older ones (me included) will dig trying to identify the locations. - Cool Mom Picks


"This celebration of the city and its diverse population of kids is a welcome reminder to find wonder and excitement in each new day." - Playthings Magazine

"Dugan not only invites viewers to sharpen their powers of obervattion, but communicates infectious enthusiasm for noticing details that have children surveying their own surroundings with new eyes." - Kirkus Reviews

"This well thought out book celebrates the hustle, bustle and diversity of arguably our country's premier city. A striking addition.  - Children's Literature

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.

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.

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.

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.

123 NYC: A Counting Book of New York City

My kids LOVE this book! They love that everything in it is found in NYC (where we live) It is a fascinating collection of numbers to look at for adults. We try to guess where they all are in the city. I have given this book and its sister book (ABC NYC) many many times as gifts because they are so original and the kids ALWAYS love them! (Especially my out of town friends-it is a nice reminder of their trip here).

A Kid's Review on March 18, 2008
Format: Hardcover
123 is a wonderful visual learning tool for toddlers and nursery school children. I have purchased it several times as a gift for friends' children and each time it has become a much loved and much used book. The association made in the book between numbers and photographic images make strong and memorable impressions on children, all the while making it fun and enjoyable for both child and parent. 123 will remain tops on my list of gift-giving ideas!
