This fabulously fun New York-based book contains over 20 activities that will entertain children on a day out in the vibrant city of New York. Big pages with plenty of space to draw on and color in will appeal to young children who may still be developing their fine motor skills, while other pages with more detailed drawings and activities will suit older children. Choose from spot the difference in Times Square, doodle pigeons in Central Park, draw an iconic landmark like the Statue of Liberty or Empire State Building or a favorite painting in a gallery. Complete and personalize the pull-out postcards and send them to friends and family. These are just a few of the many activities you'll find that are all centered around the sights of New York. Fun and educational, the New York Activity Book will help children to develop a wide range of skills, including observational, conversational and motor skills, and will make sure they get the most out of their visit to New York.
