big apple books: a walk in new york

A Walk in New York
by Salvadore Rubbino

With Father's Day on the horizon, this week's Big Apple Books features a father & son tale of discovering the Big Apple. Told in the boy's first person narration, A Walk in New York is a charming look at getting to know this great city of ours. Each page features a landmark visited by the duo, and is chock full of information. For example, did you know the names of the lions perched outside the NY Public Library? Umm... I did not (answer: Patience & Fortitude), but must admit I feel smarter now that I do!

Salvadore Rubbino writes, "I love the way a good story or picture can take you on an adventure and introduce you to wonderful new things."  And in his first book, Rubbino does just that.
