Take Toddlers on a Tour of Places Near and Far with New Board Books by Jennifer Adams (Book Reviews)

Disclosure:  I was sent review copies from the publisher in order to write up an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Chronicle Books

My girls grew up having me read Jennifer Adams' BabyLit books to them.  And, now that they are older and more curious about the world around them, and asking lots of questions, I am excited to see that this author has recently released a new series of board books called "My Little Cities."  This new series will take toddlers and beginner readers on a fun adventure to popular places in NYC and San Francisco, as well as abroad to London and Paris.  

The folks at Chronicle Books were kind enough to send along review copies to me to check out with the girls.  We had so much fun checking out these books, which includes rhyming and opposites and fun illustrations that were not only fun to look at, but were a great way to introduce my girls to the some of the attractions and structures these places are known for.  It was like we were couch travelers, traveling to far off places, while never having to leave CT.  Now my girls want to visit NYC to see the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty, thanks to these cute books.  I guess we will be planning a day trip soon and bringing our new "My Little Cities: New York City" book to see if we can spot some of the popular places featured in Jennifer's new board book.

If you have toddler or little ones who love learning about new places, or are just looking for a cute rhyming or opposites book to share with your little ones, then you will want to check out the new "My Little Cities" series from Jennifer Adams.  Once you read one of her book to your little one, you will see why and I so many other parents, grandparents and caregivers love this author and her books, including her other series BabyLit, which has sold close to 2 million copies so far. 

Here is more about the new "My Little Series" board books, which include New York City, San Francisco, London and Paris...

"In this delightful series written by BabyLit author Jennifer Adams and illustrated by kidlit darling Greg Pizzoli, each book showcases a different city with sweet baby-appropriate text, ridiculously charming illustrations, and a light introduction to rhyme and opposites. 

My Little Cities: San Francisco

"High-chair travelers can explore the City by the Bay: cruise along the majestic Golden Gate Bridge, play with the sea lions at Pier 39, ride cable cars up steep hills, and have a picnic in lovely San Francisco."

"Take a whirlwind tour of the Big Apple: cheer with the roaring crowds at Yankee Stadium, chug along peacefully on the Staten Island Ferry, wonder at the bright lights of Times Square, and say good night to the famous New York City skyline."

My Little Cities: Paris

"High-chair travelers can take a whirlwind tour of the city of light and love! Listen to the choir at Notre Dame Cathedral, explore the catacombs, ride up to the tip-top of the Eiffel Tower and, of course, say good night to the sparkling city of Paris."

"Cross the pond and explore the city on the Thames: feed the pigeons in Trafalgar Square, watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, marvel at the spinning lights of the London Eye, and say good night to London's landmark skyline."
