My Subway Ride whisks you through the vivid sounds, sights, and rhythms of the heart of New York City's subway and all the great stops along the way. From the "pitch, smack, home run " of Yankee Stadium, to the rattle of the Cyclone and the sticky cotton candy on Coney Island, to the pulse of the crowd in Times Square, this book immerses you in the movement of the city. The pulse and beat of the subway train runs throughout the text, and the colorful and bold illustrations give the graphic sense of the subway, from fading train lights, to mosaic tile walls, to colorful graffiti, to a sea of faces. Join the subway station musicians who sing of the train's sound and rhythm as "a pulse, the pulse/a heartbeat/ a jazz riff/ a constant sea/ a mama's belly/ whisking us home."

Subway ride  Mar 28, 2006
My 4 year old and I LOVE this, even though he's never been on a subway! Great writing, simple, but descriptive. Wonderful graphics. Makes me want to go ride one for sure!
The sights and sounds of the city come alive!  Dec 21, 2005
My Subway Ride is a wonderful reading experience! The beautifully crafted language and vibrant illustrations bring the New York City subway and its culture to life. This is not just a book for New Yorkers! My Subway Ride introduces young readers to the bustle, chaos and joy of urban living and celebrates the diversity and community that make New York a great American city.
good illustrations, dreadful text  Dec 15, 2005
Buy the book for its richly atmospheric illustrations, but as you look at them, make up your own text. This is home-made "poetry" at its worst with its utterly clichéd metaphors and dull, noodling rhythms. It's a mystery why the writers got top billing for spoiling an otherwise fine book.
Hang onto your hat; this is quite a ride!  Jun 4, 2005
A semi-finalists in the 2005 Independent Publisher Book Awards!

"The city is the body, the subway is the blood, running through tunnel veins." There is poetry and music in these lines; the text pulses with a jazzy beat. This is a smart, sassy, hip presentation of the underground world of the New York City subway. From the moment the reader "buys" a ticket and climbs aboard, he or she will experience some of the voices, color and imagery of this bustling place. On the subway cars, we see many different faces - various ages, ethnic groups, nationalities, walks of life: "A sea of faces, an ocean of voices, a bit of the world in every car." The readers stop at different points of interest: Yankee Stadium (161st Street), Times Square (42nd Street), Coney Island, and so forth. The illustrations are bold and riveting. At one point, the subway cars ride up the spine of a dinosaur skeleton in a natural history museum. This is a terrific introduction to the subway system, and perfectly timed: 2004 marked a century of use.
