Much more than an alphabet book, Journey Around New York from A to Z uses charming watercolors and fascinating information to conduct an alphabetical children's tour of the city. Alliterative headlines — Mammals, Minerals, and Meteorites Meet at the Museum, for example — are followed by a short history and interesting facts about each place. Of course there's a page on Broadway, headlined Audiences Applaud Actresses and Actors, and on Coney Island, called Cyclone Carries Courageous Kids, and even an entry about the events of September 11, 2001, celebrating the heroic people who sprang into action after the disaster, Tough Times Take Teamwork. Neighborhoods, parks, museums, parades — everything is included in this entertaining and useful book.
Hardcover, illustrated in color, 32 pages.
