There's a new addition at Big Apple Books, and we're all loving it! New York is My Playground, by author and photographer Jane Goodrich, is a colorful picture book filled with NYC kids doing all sorts of awesome things just by living here. In fact, I read it to my daughter's class towards the end of the school year, and what can I say, I was a hit. Mmm... so maybe the book should technically get most of the credit. In any case, while the pages are no doubt a love letter to the little ones who inhabit this city, it's also perfect for any kid who dreams about coming to the Big Apple for a visit.
If you'd like to attend a reading and meet the author in person, Ms. Goodrich will be hosting a story time at POWERHOUSE on 8th in Brooklyn on Sunday, July 24. Click HERE for all the details!
