Synopsis

New York by Sally Garrington

New York, the most densely populated city in North America, is the home of the United Nations and a hub of international finance, art, and entertainment. Strategically located on one of the world's largest harbors, New Amsterdam was founded by the Dutch in 1625. A must-see for tourists from around the world, New York is a powerful symbol of American culture. The city welcomes immigrants, with more than a third of its population foreign born. And it has successfully dealt with crime - it is the safest large city in the U.S. Though devastated by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, New York continues its strong recovery. New York offers readers a well-ordered introduction to this complex city, from its history and amazing diversity to its economy, infrastructure and management, and the possibilities ahead.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
