100 First Words for Little New Yorkers


Additional Media


We’ve got pizza rats and bodega cats. We’ll grab a slice or some bagel and schmear, but don’t even think about calling a “taxi.” Fuhgeddaboudit! A true New Yorker knows it’s a “cab”!

Yerrr! Introducing 100 First Words for Little New Yorkers, a state primer for kids learning their first words! Forget apple and dog. Little New Yorkers are ready to move from ABC to MTA and other New York-specific words like borough, hero, and egg cream (if you know, you know). Packed with hilarious illustrations and 100 words every NYC-dwelling baby should know (before any others, of course), 100 First Words for Little New Yorkers is the perfect board book for families who call the City home.

About Patrick Gray

Patrick Gray is an illustrator based out of Montreal, Canada, who studied at the Ontario College of Art & Design. His lifelong challenges are to make art that's just as complicated as it needs to be and to know precisely when to stop working on a drawing: skills that (not-at-all maddeningly) his one-year-old daughter has already mastered.
