To celebrate the 100th anniversary of New York City’s Grand Central Station, Penguin Young Readers Group has re-released Next Stop Grand Central, a picture book that examines what takes place daily in this famous and very busy transportation hub. The book is filled with fun facts and information about the many people that run Grand Central, as well as the travelers that run through Grand Central!

Why It’s Fun

For many children, train stations are exciting, mysterious places and this book is sure to satisfy their need for curiosity. Grand Central Station is an American icon and the author-illustrator’s offbeat humor and graphics provide a fun way to learn all about what goes on inside on a daily basis.

Who It’s For

Kids, and the adults who read to them, will enjoy this book. Though Grand Central Station is in New York City, audiences in any region should love it.

What To Be Aware Of

Next Stop Grand Central is available in a variety of formats and should easily be found at local libraries.
