Kidding Around NYC by Suzanne Roche


“It’s called KIDDING AROUND for a reason. Yes, it’s written for kids (you guessed that, right?) but it’s also entertaining and full of unusual details and fun information. If you are going to New York City or live in New York City or just want to learn more about New York City, you are going to love this book! We’re not kidding”……… 

According to Suzanne, there is more to New York, than being the birthplace of Scrabble and toilet paper, home to George Washington’s tooth and Einstein’s eyeballs!!!!!!

Subways and parks and food carts add to the charm of big city. With modern skyscrapers next to some eighteenth century landmarks, NYC has a lot to offer.

Now this one is truly precious for the little explorers. With interesting illustrations, fun trivia and appealing historical references, Suzanne Roche’s Kidding Around NYC is just the book needed by children wanting to explore “The Big Apple”. The book does not flood the reader with information( to delve in deeper, we have Google!!!!) The simple format makes it easier for the children to read it themselves.

A perfect partner for kids wanting to explore the city!
