Staff Review: "The Lions at Night" by Jessica M. Boehman


Take an adventure through New York City in this wordless picture book! 

The famous sculpted lions outside of the New York Public Library, Patience and Fortitude, take an adventure one summer evening as they leave their usual post outside the NYPL. The lions ride the subway, visit Coney Island, and more. The black and white illustrations with pops of color will prompt families to have fun narrating this tale together. The author also provides a short history of Patience and Fortitude at the end of the book. 

Recommended for any fans of New York, history or anyone looking to have fun telling a story with their child.

Audience: children | Genre: picture book
