A Walk in New York by Salvatore Rubbino

Rubbino, Salvatore, A Walk in New York. Candlewick Press, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. On a boy’s first visit to New York, he gets to see many great sites: Empire State Building, Union Square Park, Macey’s Department store, and really gets a good look at what makes New York, New York.
The illustrations are well-done and seem to reflect New York well. The text is simple, but informative. The text and pictures work well together to bring to life a city known more by name then by what it holds. Young readers and preschoolers will probably enjoy reading this book and or having it read aloud to them.  PREK/EL (K-3). OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Kira Moody, Youth Services Librarian, HUN Public Library.
