Side note: Other reviewers have noted displeasure in the 'storyline' or lack thereof. If you're looking for a good read-aloud text, this is probably not it. It is more a phenomenal picture book that lends itself to some great discussion.
If I'm being honest, I didn't love the text of the story. I'm not sure what I expected, but it didn't have the same depth that I'm used to from HONY posts on facebook and instagram. I didn't expect some profound philosophy, but it just left me feeling a little unsatisfied text-wise.
It's great for kids who are at the pre-reading age who like to make observations and point out things in books. It would be good for discussing diversity, colors (many of the photos have kids in very colorful outfits and costumes), and teaching new words by pointing and explaining.
It's a short and simple bedtime read with positive messages about how children learn and grow accompanied by charming photos of the children of New York City. (New Yorkers will have fun trying to place which street and which block the photos were taken on).
It's a great visual book with a lot of appeal to younger readers. There's not all that much there for parents but at least it's a fun and easy read.
