Description

Meet Madison, Alexander, Fabian, Sophia and Jayla - New York kids representing a blend of culture and race that typifies this impressive state. They'll take you through a year in the life of New York's kids, from celebrations, traditions and events, to the everyday way of life and the little things that make childhood so memorable. A New York Year is a picture book showcasing the cultural diversity of the state.

It's a snapshot of New Yorkers, blending modern-day culture and lifestyle with the traditions of the past. Its pages feature meandering text, dates and gorgeous illustrations showcasing five New Yorker children at play, at school, at home, and enjoying the sights and sites of New York. From the spectacular Niagara Falls and Adirondack Mountains to the beaches of Long Island, and the dazzling lights of Manhattan, this is a New York childhood.
