Average Rating
Pub. Date:
A picture book for city lovers everywhere! Vibrant illustrations and a spare text come together in this striking picture book to tell the story of the building of Manhattan. There was a time when the city was little more than an undeveloped island. But as the small patch of land shifted from Native American to Dutch to English to American hands, it was built, layer on top of layer, into the bustling metropolis it is today.

With illustrations so detailed that one look just won?t be enough, this book explores the city?s many layers and shows they?re still visible, as long as you know where to look! A time line and bibliography are included.
