New York City History for Kids: From Amsterdam to the Big Apple is a full-color, softcover history book designed to appeal to young readers ages 9 and up. Black-and-white photography illustrates virtually every page of this chronicle from New York's colonial days to the modern day. Twenty-one suggested activities, such as drawing a "Gibson Girl" like 1890's pop artist Charles Dana Gibson used to create to illustrate New York magazines, or pretending to be an urban planner and lay out a city with construction paper and curling ribbon, pepper New York City History for Kids. An excellent resource for encouraging young people to learn!
