My New York

My New York

New Anniversary Edition

The beloved classic celebration of New York City by Kathy Jakobsen.

A young New Yorker writes to her friend from the Midwest to tell about the things they will see in the city… and gives a seek-and-find, kid’s eye-view of the Big Apple.

Engagingly described and sumptuously illustrated with paintings full of details to pore over again and again, the city’s pleasures almost burst off the page: the thrill of riding your own special horse on Central Park’s colorful carousel, the magic of seeing the spectacular Fourth of July firewords explode over the New York skyline, and much, much more. Oversized fold-out pages of the Empire State Building, the dinosaurs at the Museum of Natural History, and Rockefeller Center at Christmastime add to the fun, while a map in the front and fun facts in the back make a helpful guide for visitors and locals alike.
