Although I am a big fan of HONY, I felt disappointed with this publication. First, much less pages and no stories behind the photos. I understand they are children, but nevertheless in HONY Facebook posts even children have little comments.
I found it disappointing that the book in fact isn't compiled like the blog or the book Humans of New York. I expected there to be pictures AND stories/quotes of the variety of children in New York. However, there are no stories but only pictures and, frankly, some quite lame self-help-book-like text for kids. Humans of New York is one of the most touching publications ever and I really love it, but I feel that this version underestimates kids (or at least the kid I bought this for). I don't think only the pictures really teach kids, as well as they would've with the stories, that we are all extremely different but still the same, and we're all equally valuable.
I was pretty disappointed with this. I'm a huge fan of HONY (particularly for Brandon's recent international tour), but this book is really lacking in any of the depth that's characteristic of his work. I was planning on giving this to my 5 year old nephew for Christmas, but with such a flat story line (or lack thereof), I can see this collecting dust pretty quickly.
Is this a picture book to be read to the children or for a child to read on his own? For $9 I don't know what I got out of it and am not sure if any of my grandsons, 7.5, 2.5 and 1.5 would find it interesting.
Very disappointing. Humans of New York is successful because of the human story behind each picture. There are none in the little humans. We don't know who those children are or what they are thinking, feeling or experiencing. There are more interesting pictures of children in the blog that don't need added words. Why not pick them if you were not to tell the story of each individual picture?
