Review

This picture book is the third in a series of picture books that teaches children the alphabet through fun and exciting places for children in different cities. The first two feature Philadelphia and Atlantic City and gave parents the ABCs of sight-seeing with kids. This installment is no different: parents and children alike can delight in a beautifully illustrated book that takes kids on a journey through the Big Apple with all those subway trains like the A, C, and the E running under the city, the subway may not be a bad place to start your travels with the book in hand! --Curious Parents

From the Publisher

A primer on Manhattan unlike any other. From A is for American Museum of Natural History to Z is for Zabars, this handy little guide book on Manhattan belongs on the bedside tables of every child living in New York City and the bookshelves of every visitor.

I recently purchased this book and found it to be terrific. What a great idea! My kids love it. We live outside of NYC and visit quite often. We are trying to go to or at least spot everything that matches the ABCs in the book.

It is a great way to get the kids excited about going to NY. For tourists who visit once or yearly it is probably even better.

I would recommend this to anyone who has kids between 2 and 10 years old. My daughter who is 4 loves it and so does my son who is 7.

Thank you Mathew Rosenberger for making the Big Apple come to life in the eyes of my children! We look forward to your next book.

I have several of these books and they are wonderful for parents as well as children. There are places in these books that you would definitely miss if you didn't have the book, so they serve parents well also! If you truly want to incorporate your children into your vacation, this is the book to have. It makes a wonderful souviener for the children and helps them to remember an awesome vacation! It also removes the hassle of researching "what to do" on your trip. I love them!!!

While this is primarily a unique travel book which makes sightseeing fun for kids, it's also a great way to teach the alphabet and build vocabulary. I have twin three year olds who were born in New York and now live in New Jersey, and we use the book to learn the ABCs, practice words, and "visit" the sites of Manhattan. Most of the ABC books I buy for my kids are illustrated with licensed characters from Sesame Street, etc., so this is a refreshing alternative.

It only had pictures and not the ones I would choose
for a trip to NYC. I have visited NYC many times
and did not feel the book would help my five year
old grandson to learn about what the city offers.
I sent it back and made my own book.
Amazon was wonderful to work with. No questions asked about the return.
