  1. Grandma CJ

    This is part of a set that cover opposites, shapes, colours, etc. Beautifully made and sturdy enough to stand the test of time. So very glad I bought them all.

  2. Amazon Reader

    Colorful board book about different big cities
    Great book for toddlers. The whole series is fun. I gave them to a family who plans to take the children traveling when the kids are older.

    Not impressed and not what I expected from the cover and popularity on Amazon
    Simply put, this book was a let down. If you are looking for a young children’s book that emphasizes color, I suggest going with a long time favorite instead, like “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see,” by Eric Clarle. It shows that a story can be incredibly simple and still hit it out of the park, so it would be worth the extra $10 to have a book you will read over and over to your kid.Judging from the cute and vibrantly illustrated cover and the fact that there are several more books that comprise this series, I thought this would be an engaging and fun pick to read with my child. The content really ended up being a miss for us both, and the pictures were so obscure in terms of subject matter that I really couldn’t tie in new vocabulary or point out a lot to to my toddler. Maybe I would appreciate it more if I lived in Manhattan, but I doubt it. The pages were all pretty much monochromatic and the text was nothing close to a story line, rather a single sentence was written on every other page and it probably took just as much time to write the book as it took me to read it.I found it bizarre and it really didn’t hold my 17 month old son’s attention.While I understand that this book is meant be all about showing a different color on each page I think there were so many missed opportunities to excite and evoke curiosity for this great age group. My son LOVES books and he was over this one within a few minutes.This board book was one of four sent to me as part of my Prime Book Box subscription that I signed up for last month. It was my first box and I have to say, I was really underwhelmed with the selections I received with the exception of one that was really great. This book was my least favorite for several reasons, which I expanded upon, and although I had the opportunity to swap out the books that Amazon chose, the options were surprisingly limited and there were only 8 stories in total to choose from. I think from now on I will just stick to the library and buy my books individually with my Prime account. The subscription saved me an average of $1/book I think. Oh well!

    Good Baby Book… nothis special thou.
    I bought this book as a gift but when it arrived i decided to keep it for my daughter. It’s actually a book that teaches colors and it is New York themed. I love it because it is a board book, very thick pages and quality is good. However, it only has six pages which is not a lot. The first left page tells GREEN Statue of Liberty and there is a picture of green statue of liberty on the right page. The second left page tells new yorkers dressed in black and there is a picture of people walking in the busy streets of new york dressed in black… and so on…. Its a good book for babies to learn colors and at the same time get them familiarize about New York.

    A Smart Way to Show Colors
    I checked out all four books of “Hello World” from the library for my daughter. She loves New York book the best. She particular loves the page shows “New Yorkers dressed in BLACK” cause she always turns to this page and points it to me.What I like about this book is that, when you open it, on the left is a whole page of one color and on the right there is pictures of something in NY show this color in real life. My nephew has difficult identifying colors. If you bring him red/blue/green toy cars or pens then ask him for the colors, he would only tell you that they are cars/pens. We had to bring different colors of construction paper to show him the color, instead of different everyday life objects. I wish I found this book earlier to show him colors.

    On the surface it seems like there isn’t much to this book
    On the surface it seems like there isn’t much to this book, but my toddler thinks otherwise. She absolutely loves it. The cover is really the only part of the book with a variety of bright colors, which is why I’m taking off one star. The inside deals more with muted greens, browns, oranges, and reds. There is something about these shades and their illustrations that captivates her. Maybe because they’re unusual for a board book? Personally I wish it had more variety, but I’m not the target audience. My 20 month old gives it a big thumbs up!

    Great Book to Familiarize a Child with NYC Landmarks
    This book is great. I got it for my 2-year-old nephew, so that he could start to get familiar with parts of the city where his uncle lives. He kept asking where I lived and where I was going when I left their house in PA, and now he knows. The artwork is minimalist, but done in a way that makes it interesting for a young child. And it’s the best book I found that was 2-year-old friendly and that included a sizable list of NYC landmarks. Now, every time I go home to see my nephew, he always talks about the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, etc. It’s adorable.

    great board book
    I got this book when my daughter was 5 months old after we visited NYC, and it has always been one of her favorite books. She is 19 months as of this review and still loves to read this book. It is simple and easy to read (and read again and read again…) and is a great way for her to learn colors and about other places than where we live.

    Wonderful for teaching colors
    My two year old loves this book. It is great for learning colors. This is the second one I’ve purchased to replace a well loved copy.
