    This was so much fun I loved learning about the names of cities and I liked the uirkiness of the illustrations

  2. says:

    I liked the idea for this picture book better than its execution The plot centers around snooty New York's decision to have a party and invite several other cities with uniue names There's a guest list at the front of the book with the names of the cities and their origin making it easy for young readers to see that even this nation's place names have cultural significance and reveal just how diverse our origin was as well as how diverse we continue to be The text seems a bit halting and awkward at part but this book could still be useful in a social studies class Even the ink and watercolor illustrations show the differences in places and their human counterparts such as New York Minneapolis and Chattanooga Young readers will enjoy the origin of some of the names too Who knew that Chicago is Algonuian for stinking onions Or that Portland Oregon was named for its predecessor in Maine

    New York is English Chattanooga is Creek is an older elementary middle school aged book by author Chris Raschka This book has not won any awards but another book by this author has won the Caldecott medal The story line of the book is that Ney York is having a party and inviting other cities and states While it goes through the introductions it tells where all the names are from I enjoyed reading the book and learning the history of where we came up with names for the different parts of our country The book would make a great addition to an American history lesson for any grade I am coming up with ideas as I type The author made a great start of showing the diversity of our country but could have taken it so much further I will have to read other books by the author to see if this was just a fluke or if their other books try to reach a higher meaning I would certainly use this book in my classroom

    This book takes the inspirations behind a handful of big city's names and invites all of the imagined personalities to a partyThe book begins with a list of characters cities and states the naming culture and the meaning of the name translated to English I found this to be the most interesting part of the book and the story weaving all of their personalities together to be eh and a little repetitiveInk and watercolor illustrations are beautiful and really take into account the naming cultures I think this idea works better as an art installation and less as a book as the portraits of the characters aka cities were fabulous and the information about the names was interesting while the story was the weakest link PreK 2

    At first I thought this was a book of one idea the rather kitschy personification of cities into individuals evocative of the city's original namers Hence New York becomes an English duke and Minneapolis becomes a Sioux maiden Clever yes But I was unconvinced this was really that great a bookHowever all that changed when New York who is English decided to throw a party for all his friends

    I love Raschka's style I have a bin of his work in the room that I find myself going back to often Like others I like the idea here and there is lot of consider by way of how text and image are working together but something is lost in the party line of the book But as an introduction to communities and how they got their namesvery nice book I found my copy today at the Friends of the Library Sale for a uarter and I am so happy to add this to our Raschka collection

    This could be educational if it wasn't so forgettable I feel there was a missed opportunity here If the story itself was better laid out or especially if there was RHYMING this could have been such a great book The text reads stilted and there is an occasional rhyme which really throws you off because then you think it all should rhyme

  9. says:

    I loved the concept the personification of many American cities with an explanation of their names' linguistic origins but I felt the text sadly lacked in fluidity It isn't an easy read aloud thought New York throwing a party for the other cities is humorous This could still be a useful classroom text though for studying personification and the multicultural origins of the USA

  10. says:

    Fiction yet with non fiction concepts I never knew I could be so interested in the origin of city names I just wish there was a bibliography or some type of informational page at the end of the book to help students do further research on the city names
