Description

Sure to put youngsters in a New York state of mind, this book of more than 100 doodles introduces them to the city that never sleeps through local and unique illustrations and activities, from the classic (coloring the lights on top of the Empire State Building) and the fun (creating a subway car) to the just plain wacky (doodling a giant cockroach). The book's convenient size makes it a perfect souvenir for tiny-tot tourists and little locals alike, and the projects require no previous drawing skills—just imagination. In addition to five doodle challenges, the book also incorporates QR codes to offer readers free doodles online.
