An Armadillo in New York

We rated this book:


Arlo the armadillo loves to explore and travel to new places. His uncle, Augustin, leaves him a collection of travel journals. Arlo takes the journals and travels to New York City, following Augustin’s directions. Arlo visits the top of Rockefeller Center, Broadway, Central Park and Yankee Stadium. While at each place, Augustin’s journal tells him about the landmark and mentions Lady Liberty. Arlo keeps wondering where Lady Liberty is, until he ends up at the Statue of Liberty.

I liked An Armadillo in New York. It is different than other books I’ve read because there are journal pages that are directing Arlo on his journey. The illustrations are different than I’ve seen before, almost like scratches. They are really neat. At the end of the book, there is a page all about Lady Liberty, which taught me more about the Statue of Liberty. I think An Armadillo in New York would be a great book for kids to read who are going to visit New York or learning about New York City. It really shows a lot of the things you can see in the city.
