Count on The Subway by Paul DuBois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender is a delightful children’s book that tells what it’s like to ride the subway counting all the way. My little ones love this book especially since they hear all about the subway from their sister who attends school near NYC.
This book was very timely since she will be graduating in a few weeks and was hired as a GIS Analyst with New Jersey Transit. So trains, subways and everything transportation is big around here.
So if you have a MetroCard of if you have never stepped foot on a subway, this book is a ticket to ride for all. Everyone can experience a taste of navigating through NYC on this counting adventure!
1 MetroCard, Momma and me.
Down 2 flights—to catch the 3.
4 turnstiles, singers 5.
A rumble, a screech . . . the train arrives!
This bright, young counting book is a delightful trip through the New York City subway system. Hand in hand, child and mother see colorful subway signs and funny passengers, watch trains screeching by, and make new friends. With bold illustrations and a playful, rhyming text, this is not only a counting book, but also a tribute to New York and a sweet story of a child and parent navigating the city together.
