We bought this book for my 5-year-old nephew and 3-year-old niece, who will make their first visit to in Chicago just before Christmas (with their parents). Not only will the weather be completely different from what they're used to in Tucson, AZ, but so will the big city feel. We sent it to them hoping that it would help them get excited for their upcoming trip and to help them enjoy the many tourist sites we plan to visit while they're here, and their reaction has been incredible. My brother tells me that he has to read the book to them at least once a day, and they're making lists of what they most want to see when they get here. When my nephew was "Star of the Week" in kindergarten, he even picked "Larry Gets Lost in Chicago" as his favorite book to share with the class!

We just received this book as a baby shower gift and my husband and I are already in love with the Larry Gets Lost series. We live in Chicago and the author and illustrator do a beautiful job of sharing the sites of all over Chicago. We highly recommend and will definitely be purchasing more books in the series!

This is just the cutest book, and it is such a neat way to show children what is in a particular city. I sent a copy to my niece and nephew in Montana, so they will get excited to visit me in Chicago. The art style is also very interesting and beautiful. I only had one complaint: When Larry and Pete get separated, one goes north and the other goes south. One visits the Hancock Building while the other is at the Sears/Willis Tower. Geographically, they should have been switched. That's nitpicking, I know, but I couldn't help but notice.

My 2 year old loves this book! We live in the Chicago suburbs but go into the city quite often, I read her this book to get her excited about going. I also sent this book to my neices that live in North Carolina, before they came to visit us. I even love the cool anecdotes about Chicago in this book, educational for even adults!

My grandson went to Chicago when he was 3 years old and he always talks about it. It was a great way to remember what he'd forgotten in a year. Now he wants to go back and see it again.

This book is pretty great. For an adult...it really tells you about nearly everything there is to see in the city. The book is written with great rhythm and flow. But there are also small descriptions about all the sights Larry visits when lost in Chicago. It really got our four year old excited and I think he will remember the experience more because of it.

This is a great book that you can read pretty quickly or take your time reading the little facts about Chicago such as the Bean or other sights. It is a series about a dog, Larry, that gets lost in Chicago. My family enjoys each of the "Larry Gets Lost" books.
