kids who live in nyc (or any big city) don't see too many "cows" to go with their learning of the letter "c." similarly, kids who live in the country or the suburbs don't know much about newsstands or hot dog vendors. this book has really unique, authentic new york city photos for each letter of the alphabet. it's a great way to expand the typical alphabet book genre. i've bought it for three of my friends with young children and they all love it.

Format: Hardcover
This book is full of the little things that NYC children see every day - scaffolding, hot dog, metrocard.

Some of the letter choices are a little weird, though, or else not as complete as they might be. V is for vendor - I would have liked to see another V word in there (most of the letters have more than one picture) like Verrazano bridge. Z is "zoo animals at the park", which is really stretching it - I understand that a Dr. Zizmor ad would be in poor taste, but why not a picture of the zoo itself, then? R manages to be for roller bladers, restrooms, and recycling - how about river? We've only got two of them :) O is for onlookers, another weird one. Onlookers? There must be something better than that! How about "one way sign" even?

With all those complaints said, it's not a bad book, and it's certainly refreshing to see a book filled with things we *really* see and use daily.

Our baby has started being able to identify things in pictures with both words and sign language, and this is one of her all-time favorite books. As people who lived in NYC for 13 years, this book is very nostalgic for us, too. We read this book to her at least once a day. The author took fantastic pictures and put them together in a very creative and sometimes humorous format (K is for "Knish" etc.).

I highly recommend this book!!
