Review: What's Great about New York? by Ann Malaspina


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
What's so great about New York? Find out the top ten sites to see or things to do in the Empire State! Explore New York's busy Big Apple, beautiful waterways, and rich history. The New York by Map feature shows where you'll find all the places covered in the book. A special section provides quick state facts such as the state motto, capital, population, animals, foods, and more. Take a fun-filled tour of all there is to discover in New York.
MY TAKE:
I've never been there, but New York is still one of my favorite cities.

In What's Great about New York, readers are given a quick overview of the history, interesting facts and sites about New York state.

The pictures were nice and really made me feel like I was at the particular locations that were being highlighted. The information in the book were presented in such a manner that kids won't be bored by it or have trouble understanding it.

I also found it nice that it doesn't focus solely on New York City, but also includes the other parts of New York. It's helped me get a clearer picture of the rest of the state and it might help me remember the geography better.

Thanks to NetGalley and Lerner Publications for the e-ARC. Publication date of What's Great about New York? is on September 1, 2014.
