I purchased this and 'Arthur lost in the Museum' for my 5 year old son for Christmas in an attempt to encourage him to read as he hates reading and it worked! The books have stickers in the centre and the idea is when you read the story with your child, there are words highlighted in blue for the child to read, when he/ she identifies the word, they must find the sticker in the centre of the book and stick it over the blue word. This is a fantastic idea for children who dont like reading very much (like my son) he got very excited about finding the stickers and there is a second page of stickers for the child to make his or her own story using pictures and words. My son wrote and illustrated his very own story using these stickers and enjoyed every minute of it.
The only drawback to these books is once you have used all the stickers and read the story the book is kind of redundant and at £2.50 a pop, it can work out expensive. Also, my son at 5 years old is a bit too old for this book, he could read the whole book, not just the blue words ( although we did have fun) so I think level 3 or 4 would be more suitable for a 5 year old. This book would be more suited to a child in pre reception or reception class.

The story was good fun too, I love Arthur the Aardvaark, I used to read his books when I was a kid!

I love the Arthur books ( and the TV show). The stories relate to real life eventualities and are always from the children's perspective which keeps little ones interested. Parts of the stories are quite funny but there is action and drama as well.
My favourite aspect is the books are polite and harmless. I would happily allow my 7 year old to read / watch Arthur and not worry that it contains anything scary, rude or otherwise inappropriate.

Stuck on Language 23 May 2012
By Melanie Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In the elementary reading world, there's "reading to the steps" a K-4 guide emblazoned on many soft-cover books that helps parents select their child's reading level based on their grade and ability.

This word-and-story formulation all started in 1957 with the The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss, then published under the Beginner Books imprint. Since then, many children's book publishers offer these guided reading books. Random House has the "Step into Reading" books, a successor to the Beginner line that features Marc Brown's popular "Arthur" series.

The 450 words of ARTHUR IN NEW YORK are all sight words for the grade 1-3 reader as well as a few ringers like `elevator' and `sculpture'. It's a solid story that lacks dynamic language; I found it hard to believe that Marc Brown himself wrote this common little story. So Random House tries to jazz it up by including a sticker book where readers can paste the corresponding sticker over the color-coded word in the text.

Both my 1st and 3rd graders thought that was silly. I also thought that having the aardvark family see "The Lion King" while in New York City was blatantly commercial. What's next? That Arthur and his family have lunch at McDonald's?

The Arthur series does the guided reading in a linguistically stilted and transparently commercial way. Stick with the old but true literature found in the "I Can Read Books" featuring Little Bear (An I Can Read Book) and Frog and Toad Are Friends (I Can Read Book 2).

I had to edit my review because hey, the book's for my son, not for me. And my son loves all of the Arthur books, especially this one.

Good book to introduce New York City to my son. The funny thing is after reading the whole book, he is most excited about getting a pretzel! Arthur books have an overall good standard to them. My son loves looking for names in the books (Eliza, Tucker, Tolan, etc.).

this book was suggested for my daughters summer reading list. we are planning a trip to New York, so what better way to introduce it to her...well, it is an easy read but she read it very quickly, not very challenging for a seven year old
