068: SBP Greetings from New York! Cont.

06 Grand Central Terminal
"Grand Central Terminal's ceilings are grand!" squeaked the little mouse.
This illustration includes hot dogs from the Sabretto hot dog stands you see at every NY street corner and oysters from the Oyster Bar. Best oysters ever! mmmmm.

07 New York Botanical Garden
It was raining pretty hard when we visited the New York Botanical Garden, so our main stop was at their Holiday Train Show!! Model trains zoom-zooming through miniature sculptures of NY landmarks... made out of plants! Plants! You even get a look into "The Artists Studio" - an insiders look at the process of making the model landmarks.

067: SBP Greetings from New York! Cont.

05: The New York Public Library
One of my favorite places is the NYC Public Library. Everything about this building is breathtaking. It makes you wonder how anyone can study in such a beautiful place!
In addition, they have a great exhibition going on, THE ABC OF IT: Why Children Books Matter. I was very excited to see it and so so so glad I did!
"The ABC of It is an examination of why children’s books are important: what and how they teach children, and what they reveal about the societies that produced them. Through a dynamic array of objects and activities, the exhibition celebrates the extraordinary richness, artistry, and diversity of children’s literature across cultures and time."
Can't get much better than that. :)
