Counting Books: Wow! New York City and 123 Phildelphia
The seventh title of the Cool Counting Book series is now out! 123 Philadelphia by Puck, a new board book featuring the city’s symbols and landmarks, is going to make counting more fun with the kids. Each page displays bold graphics of what the city has to offer, like the Liberty Bell and cheese steaks!
If you’re stumped on a symbol or landmark, just go to the back of the book and read the location list in both English and Spanish. This is totally different than the traditional counting books out there. Definitely add 123 Philadelphia to your toddler’s book collection. Other books I recommend in the series are 123 New York, 123 San Francisco, and 123 Chicago.
Another book that Puck has written is Wow! New York City, a children’s book that uses wire-art sculptures to take readers on a dazzling trip through the Big Apple. The artist, Rey David Rojas does a brilliant job in creating New York’s most famous symbols such as the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Empire State Building out of paper clips! He created the images in the book using wire made of copper and plastic. He then photographed them and added his favorite colors as backgrounds.
Like the Cool Counting Book Series, there’s information in the back describing the city’s attractions and landmarks. A wonderful book that is imaginative and entertaining to read. Price is $14.95. Both books are published by Duopress.
