We’ve got pizza rats and bodega cats. We’ll grab a slice or some bagel and schmear, but don’t even think about calling a “taxi.” Fuhgeddaboudit! A true New Yorker knows it’s a “cab”!

Yerrr! Introducing 100 First Words for Little New Yorkers, a state primer for kids learning their first words! Forget apple and dog. Little New Yorkers are ready to move from ABC to MTA and other New York-specific words like borough, hero, and egg cream (if you know, you know). Packed with hilarious illustrations and 100 words every NYC-dwelling baby should know (before any others, of course), 100 First Words for Little New Yorkers is the perfect board book for families who call the City home.
