New York City is such a large and busy city, this book really helps to break up the attractions for kids. Lets them learn a little about each major attraction before they go and I bet they will get more excited as they read each section!~Melanie
This delightful book took me on a tour of all the best spots to visit while in NYC. While it was written in a kid friendly manner, it taught me a thing or two as well. I find that having a little bit of knowledge and history of famous sites makes the trip more enjoyable.~Sherri
The book was very specific about the places that are an intricate part of NYC and explained many interesting things about the city and even went on to describe the places give a little history or a fun story that had to do with the place. Very interesting!~Elizabeth
