New York City is full of excitement at any hour of the day or night. Imagine riding in a speedboat out to the Statue of Liberty, or having a sleepover in the Museum of Natural History. You can walk across the famous Brooklyn Bridge or watch a movie being filmed right on the street. Or maybe you'd like to travel back in time, to experience life as an early New Yorker.
If there's anything fascinating or fun that you can't do here, it's just because no one has thought of it yet. For over a hundred years New York has been known as 'The Big Apple' - the best place in the world to be.
In this buzzing big city, you may be surprised to find quiet corners and vast green spaces filled with all kinds of wildlife. You'll also meet people who are trusting God with their lives and trying to make a difference in the lives of others. Quizzes and illustrations included.
"It is written in a colourful way, giving a real picture of the sights and sounds that would greet one in New York. The themes covered range from slavery, immigration, sweatshops, street gangs, wildlife in Central Park and the terrorist attacks of 9/11, to name a few. The reader is introduced to many characters, some famous and others unsung heroes who quietly trusted God and tried to make a difference in the lives of others. The challenge is made to the reader to reach others with the good news of Jesus too. The best praise for this book comes from my eight-year-old, who said: 'I think it's a very good book and it's always pointing to Jesus'."
