Description

Central Park, in the heart of New York City, is more than just a beautiful urban park. With every season, life moves forward and creates stories: Two rabbits in the spring grow into a family by winter; baby boys and girls born in early summer become tots come fall; warm-weather teen skateboarders go snowboarding when frost blankets the ground; trees change color, leaves fall, ponds freeze, and somehow those little squirrels always find a way to make trouble.

All these stories are here for you to find in Park—and you can also create your own. This humongous book unfolds to almost 5 feet, so you can crawl right into the stories and discover every little detail that Central Park has to offer you.
