"We can't wait to share the whole big world with the little people in our lives, especially some of our favorite places right here in the USA. Is there any way Chicago-style pizza could make an acceptable first food for baby?" —Pregnancy & Newborn magazine (March 2011)

This counting board book serves a double purpose for pint-sized Chicagoans. Not only can they master numbers from 1 to 10; they can gain familiarity with Windy City favorites such as the Sears Tower, the Elevated Train, Navy Pier fireworks, Chicago-style hot dogs, and the city's famous deep-dish pizza. A virtual infinity of educational fun.
