McCartney, Tania and Snerling, Tina, A New York Year: 12 Months in the Life of New York’s Kids. Exisle Publishing Company, 2016. $17.99. PICTURE BOOK.
Meet 5 kids from various backgrounds as readers see how they spend their year in New York. The text is fairly simple, but hard to follow across the page. The information wasn’t that unique, but would work to teach kids about diversity. The illustrations are pretty tiny, so they wouldn’t make a good bigger group read aloud (ex. Classroom). In a small, bedtime setting, however, it might work okay. PreK, EL (K-3). OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
