I found this cute photo book at Kinokuniya in Midtown Manhattan. Little Apple (Barefaced New York Kids) by Satoru Ishikawa is a series of children's photographs taken in New York at various kid friendly locales (Magnolia Bakery, anyone?). The Japanese photographer, who lives in the city, captures the cheeky and stylish toddlers, detailing the venues and the kids--whether they're in a happy, goofy, or badass mood (check out the toddler above). Written in Japanese, the book is worth the price just for the portraiture and list of cool, hip (and kid-friendly) places to check out in the city (the venues are listed in English). Book information is supplied by Google's Japanese translation so pardon if it's a bit off.
