Picture Book Review: Green Place to Be

41183557. sx318

With New York City growing at a huge rate, the city wanted a park where people could enjoy nature. Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted created plans to build a wonderful place - Central Park. 

A really fascinating book about the planning and the construction of Central Park. There were things to find of each page and mini biographies in the back of the book. The illustrations were amazing to pour over. A wonderful book to share, especially for elementary school readers. 

Grab this one for you school and public libraries
