New York City History for Kids: From New Amsterdam to the Big Apple with 21 Activities

The Paperback of the New York City History for Kids: From New Amsterdam to the Big Apple with 21 Activities by Richard Panchyk at Barnes & Noble.

This one is an oldie but an oh-so-goodie!  It chronicles the adventures of Silas as he attempts to escape the sewers of New York (after having been flushed) and return, with the other alligators of New York) to the Florida swamp of his birth.  Told in cartoons, it is an easy story for even the youngest child to follow, and funny enough to entertain child and adult alike.

The Great Escape: Or, the Sewer Story. Out of print-darn it.
