A colorful, super-fun ride!
Not just for kids — I’ve lived in New York City for many years and learned so much about my hometown from this incredibly colorful, fun book. Especially loved the videos of all the amazing celebrations that go on here all year ‘round. Just be prepared for some field trips — your child (or you) will want to go to each and every one.
