"My New York: Color, Draw, Explore"

"My New York: Color, Draw, Explore" is a fun activity and coloring book, featuring an exciting fold out scene. With drawing prompts designed to help spot recognizable buildings, people, and landmarks, young artists will be invited to design and customize their own museums, skyscrapers, sports teams, and beyond--along with some space to journal notes from their travels. Whether children get to visit London or New York in person or just in their wild imaginations, these books are an exciting means to get kids thinking about everything there is to uncover when visiting a new place. Each beautiful keepsake book features an exciting fold-out scene and includes four postcards to personalize and send to friends and family. A perfect companion to a day out in the city or a souvenir to take home.
