" A whimsical exploration of some of New York's landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, Central Park Zoo, and the American Museum of Natural History. A good children's book for both independent exploration and interaction with a more experienced reader. " said.

" Note: I received a digital ARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. " said.

"New York City Monsters Anne Paradis This is absolutely an awesome book. The whole series is actually. The kids and I have read a few of the books from the series. The kids love finding all of the monsters on each page and I love that they get a lesson about things in each of the cities. These books are fun for the kids and the parents both.
 
This book is about exploring New York City. All of the main sites are listed throughout the book. You get to see the Statue of Liberty, The empire State Building,  Grand Central Station and more. There is a small paragraph written about each site. Also there are Monsters hidden all over the place. There is a spot on each page telling yo how many Monsters to find. 
 
I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
" said.

"Let me start by saying that the illustrations, especially the monsters, are absolutely adorable and spot on! The goal of the reader/ listener is to find 6-8 hidden monsters within the illustrations as each page spread explores one of New York City's famous landmarks.
Landmarks included in the text are the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, American Museum of Natural History, Central Park zoo, 5th Avenue shops, the Empire State building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Thanksgiving day parade floats, the ice rink at Rockefeller Center and lastly, Grand Central Station.
Although I understand the book is for beginners and more of a seek to find book, I wish the author could've included a little bit more depth or backstory of the landmarks included. I think other readers/ tourists planning to make a trip with children to NYC would've also enjoyed to see some fun facts or a bit more of narration.

*I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

" One of the reasons that I like these books, is that they have a format. They always include places to see animals, places to go shopping, something of historical significance, a type of museum, and then a culturally significant area. They are all the same, but at the same time they are as unique as the city that they are visiting. " said.

" Bright landscapes of Noo Yawk are interspersed with info bubbles and monsters for you to find in a Where’s Waldo fashion. Some are pretty tricky, like the one dressed in a business suit on the street. Toward the end I missed some, much to my everlasting chagrin; some three-year-old is bound to find it and make my embarrassment complete. " said.

" Adorable search and find book with some of the Big Apple's most famous landmarks. I must admit some of the cute little monsters were hard to find! Great activity for kids who have been to NYC or are going there. " said.

" This was cute, and would be perfect for introducing NYC's highlights to children, especially if they were going to be visiting soon. The monsters were all unique and oftentimes funny - but I just wish there was an answer key, or hints, included at the end - as there were actually a few monsters that I couldn't find! " said.
