KIRKUS REVIEW

A young girl comes down from her mountain home for a visit to New York City with her father. “WOW!” The brief text is to the point. “WOW! TAXI!” “WOW! TUNNEL!” “WOW! BUILDINGS!” “WOW! PARK!” The extra-large double-spread illustrations bounce off the pages with strong colors, kinetic street vistas, and dizzying perspectives of high-rise buildings. Neubecker uses line to create powerful images of fire trucks, bridges, and subways while at the same time paying homage to the city’s multiply-hued population who fill the streets as they work, travel, play, and celebrate. Filled with energy and excitement, this works as a travel guide for the very youngest readers and fun title to share for programs and lap-sit reads. (Picture book. 2-6)
