PreSchool-Grade 2–Having already rendered Washington, D.C., to an alphabetic form in Capital! (HarperCollins, 2003), this creative team sifts its attention to the Big Apple. From the American Museum of Natural History to the Bronx Zoo, each letter is accompanied by a peppy eight-line poem as well as multiple sidebars, factoids, and tidbits about the sights described. Melmed brilliantly touches on all the major sights of NYC, only cheating a little when X represents the ever-present "TaXi." The book includes an abundance of brightly colored, folk-art-style illustrations, and an excellent map locates each place mentioned. This book is certain to be popular with families traveling to Gotham for the first time. Pair it with Martha Zschock's equally cosmopolitan, if less informative Journey around New York from A to Z (Commonwealth, 2002).– Elizabeth Bird, New York Public Library

Some of the choices for the letters are not the most obvious, but it's all well done and works fine.
child and I think through the years more details will be noticed in the illustrations, so it will never be "outgrown".
