Purchased: MoMA Store (Soho)

Why: I think I was pregnant, or trying to be, and thought this would be a fun book to read to my one-day baby who would be born in New York City.

Pros: Colorful illustrations, easy to read text, fun New York references for parents raising children here (or people familiar with the city).

New York babies are special…of course they are.

Now one of the great things about this book is that it will grow with your child since it has a fun activity page at the back of the book. For now, we’re just enjoying reading together but later, when my son is a bit older, we’ll be able to enjoy finding things in the pictures as well. That’s a definite plus as it extends the life of what would otherwise be a pretty simple board book.

Lots of activities for later

Durability: 2 bite marks. As you can see this one has been chewed on a bit and it’s definitely showing signs of wear.
