"Hail taxi! Hey taxi!
Ho taxi! Yo taxi!
Where to Miss? Where to Mister?
Where to brother? Where to sister?

This book is perfect for people everywhere who love New York City, and a fun multicultural jaunt into the Big Apple for kids everywhere.
A bus is fine, but it sticks to a line. That's okay if you've got the time. A train is a treat, but it's stuck on a track. That's a drag if you're late to get back. A car is cool but you gotta park it. A bike is groovy but you gotta lock it.
In a rush? No time to spare? Hail a cab to take you there. To the store or to the theater, Just keep one eye on the meter. As long as you've got the fare, New York cabs go anywhere! Anywhere you need to be- Directly from point A to B.

My Taxi Ride
Written by Paul DuBois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender
Illustrated by Selina Alko
Hail taxi! Hey taxi!
Ho taxi! Yo taxi!
Where to Miss? Where to Mister?
Where to brother? Where to sister?
All around New York town!
Hail a taxi and dash off on a colorful ride through the sights and sounds of New York City! Stop on Broadway to see a play, climb the Empire State Building, or visit the zoo in Central Park "where bikers bike and doggies bark." The rhythm of this book will whisk you through the narrow streets of Greenwich Village to the wide expanses of Museum Mile. Ride right through the heart of the city. Filled with the colorful, hip illustrations of Selina Alko, My Subway Ride is must-have for children everywhere and for anyone who loves New York City or wants to visit there.

Paul has co-authored three books with musician Pete Seeger: Pete Seeger's Storytelling Book, Abiyoyo Returns, and Some Friends to Feed: The Story of Stone Soup. Jennifer is an early childhood educator and curriculum developer. Paul and Jennifer's favorite subway line is the Q train.
Selina Alko, a children's book and editorial illustrator, studied illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
