Before Vera was born, we were given several NYC themed books as gifts. Here are two of our all time favorites. New York, Baby! by Ward Jenkins. We read this book so many times that I can recite it from memory. You can see our copy is a little tattered. The illustrations in this book are engaging and the rhymes are just perfect to capture a little one’s attention.
New York, Baby: A Local Baby Book by Violet Lemay is another great one.
Our favorite part is when all the babies say hello to one another in different languages. Vera also loves hearing me read that babies are, "Verrry street smart!"
And now we are looking for Texas and Dallas books! Do you have any favorite city-themed books? We would love recommendations!
