There's a definite streak in my desire to make sure the boys know the exciting parts of city life - which they are most definitely NOT getting in Cary, NC. Most likely the connection to my mom - Far Rockaway, Queens born and raised. Also my connection to college days in NY.
This book is beautifully rhythmic. Want to buy for our family collection.

A poetic book about NYC subway. It is a book that I may never borrow but apparently I don't fully know the taste of MT. He borrowed this book from his school library and offered to read a few paragraphs.

I read this every night, and its poetry never ceases to impress me. My daughter recites it readily. The illustrations are also beautiful, and the whole feel of it really does portray that carnival world we find underground in the city.

A poem with a great rhythm and images of NYC subway that definitely capture the excitement kids feel. Julian loves this book. Plus the authors have read at my school several times and they are cool people.

the only thing this book doesn't have is a score, it is musical in words and pictures
