Reviews

... an interesting and inspiring snapshot of New York life. Perfect for kids living in New York. Bambini Travels ...a fabulous read for families planning a trip to New York or wanting to learn more about America. In fact, after reading the book, my daughter asked if I would take her to New York! The Mummy Project The author's avowed focus on traditional endemic elements and themes common to the majority of New York's children takes readers beyond the city limits to convey a sense of the whole state's ethnic multiplicity. Kirkus Reviews A New York Year is a whirlwind tour through the 12 months of the year with child guides Fabian, Madison, Jayla, Sofia, and Alexander, each representative of some of the many races and nationalities found in New York ... Earlier books in this series include An English Year,

's amazing how much of a feel for each state I got from reading these books. I especially love the part at the back which has facts about each state ... I hope more states are explored, although there are a lot so I doubt all could be covered. I'd love Alaska to be the next book!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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.

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