'An Armadillo in New York' by Julie Kraulis follows an armadillo on a trip and we get to be armchair travellers.
Arlo is an armadillo from Brazil. Following a travel journal from his grandfather, he decides to travel to New York to see Lady Liberty. Along the way, we get sightseeing information for a visit. We see the city from the top of Rockefeller Center and the constellations on the ceiling of Grand Central Plaza. I learned that the lions outside the New York Public Library are named Patience and Fortitude. There is a Yankee game and other adventures. Finally Arlo is off to Liberty Island.
It's a great picture book filled with whimsical drawings that show the wonder of a city from a child's eye viewpoint. There are facts about the city, and I think it would be a wonderful gift for a child travelling to New York City or a child who likes to travel.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Random House of Canada Limited, Tundra Books, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
