New York Day and Night by Aurelie Pollet and Vincent Bergier

Recommended age: 3-6 years, preschool- Kindergarten
30 pages, hardcover, color

Description from Amazon: "Some of New York's most familiar sights look very different at night in this highly amusing introduction to the city. Sometimes your eyes can play tricks on you, especially in the dark. This enchanting picture book shows how New York City can look quite peculiar at night. Each brightly colored spread is overlaid with a sheet of translucent blue paper and when lifted, voilà! A space ship and Martian become The Guggenheim, a giant serpent is actually the subway, King Kong's jungle turns into Central Park, and a superhero takes on the shape of a construction worker. Exhilarating and captivating, all the scenes are easily switched between day and night and will take the reader on a unique journey that lets imaginations run wild while revealing that some things at night aren't as scary as they seem."

Why I Love It

Local readers might recognize some of the familiar sights, such as the elevated trains or the Guggenheim Museum. The fun, flippable clear inserts will keep kids entertained and allow them to see the illustrations in a whole new way!

I loved the color scheme (shades of blue, orange, black, white) and the concept that sometimes things can seem scary in the dark- until you look at them a new way.

Who Should Read It?

I'm a firm believer that picture books aren't just for kids. Anyone with a love of art would enjoy this book. Fans of New York City, city dwellers or elementary school kids of all ages. Teachers, think about using this book to teach a lesson on spotting differences, the concept of before/after, or even opposites.
