ABC NYC: A Book About Seeing New York City
by Joanne Dugan

There are not many children's books that I would qualify as artistic.  Sure, there are plenty whose illustrations are simply lovely, but I'm not pulling them out for top placement on my coffee table.  I don't even own a coffee table.  And for that I blame Baby S' toys, but I digress... because if and when I ever do own one again, ABC NYC will be on it! I absolutely love this book and think it's just as much for adults as it is for kids. 

Dugan's photos showcase letters that are as vibrant as they are clever & artistic.  This stylish book is a great way for your child to learn his/her ABC's while highlighting their very own hometown.

Furthermore, in what other city would "B" stand for bagel?  LOVE.

This book looks great. I am not from NYC but I love the idea. I am a new follower. I also love your banner/blog buttons. They are adorable.
