Window Shopping While Browsing for Books

We dare you to walk by the windows at Bank Street Book Store without finding perfect presents for kids on your wish lists: books! They are irresistibly appealing, available in every size and color, and never need to be returned because once they are opened, they are read again and again. This year's holidays are merrier if everyone has something good to read -- either under the tree, on a bedside table, or near a comfy chair. And always within reach.

"Good Morning, City" by NY1's Pat Kiernan

Wake up to great news! NY1's morning anchor Pat Kiernan has written a children's book for families across the city -- and around the world. "Good Morning, City," illustrated by Pascal Campion, is a delightful way to learn about how a bustling metropolis awakens each day -- from the busy baker to the ferry boat captain to the early news reporter (like Pat!). Pat reads and signs his book on Saturday, December 3 at 10:30 a.m. at Bank Street College, 610 West 112th Street. The event is sponsored by Bank Street Book Store and the New York Foundling, one of the city's oldest and largest children's charities.
