Description

New York babies don't just say "Mama" - they say "MoMA"! And they know all of the important shapes, like pizza and bagels and pretzels.

In New York Baby, diverse babies act as the guides, showcasing where they live and play in the big city while providing an authentic tour of all things local in this colorful board book. From famed attractions to iconic sights, this educational and entertaining read captures the essence of what it means to live in and visit New York City. The last spread offers tips for activities to enjoy on every page of the book, from finding hidden objects to pointing to shapes and letters, allowing the book to be read over and over again!
