My Little Cities: New York

Jennifer Adams, illus. by Greg Pizzoli. Chronicle, $9.99 (22p) ISBN 978-1-4521-5388-9

Adams (the Baby Lit series) and Pizzoli (Dragon Was Terrible) offer a zippy tour of the Big Apple in this pitch-perfect board book that paints the city as a town of opposites. “Building high/ Building low/ Moving fast/ Moving slow” takes readers from the Empire State Building to the New York Public Library, from the subway to the Staten Island Ferry as it chugs its way past the Statue of Liberty. Bright colors, speckled textured, and smiley, round-headed citizens (and tourists) create a sense of friendly bustle on every page, and a useful closing spread fills in details about the 10 featured sites. Simultaneously available: My Little Cities: London. Ages 3–5. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Apr.)
