Breathtaking scenes illustrate and illuminate a text that is just right for new readers-We go on the ferry. Let' s go to the window. We see a fort. We see a long, long bridge. Beautiful and fascinating paintings of the Manhattan skyline, the escalator to a gangplank, New York City crowds, and landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and more give new readers an experience that builds skills, boosts confidence, and shows how reading is fun!I Like to Read- The award-winning I Like to Read series features guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas & Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors--create original, high-quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read again and again with their parents, teachers or on their own!
The text is minimal, and the vibrant illustrations, done in digital woodcut, are meticulously accurate in their portrayals of the sights en route and the size of the ferry and its seemingly endless windows, capable of accommodating a multitude of passengers. The understated artwork depicts people from all sorts of different backgrounds, highlighting the diversity of the New Yorkers and tourists aboard the ferry. --Booklist
