Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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.

    Beautiful eye-catching book, perfect for babies!

    I bought this when my son was three months old because he was so captivated by it in the store! He is now six months and still loves it. The graphics are very bold and bright, which is great for young babies.

    I don't care too much about the counting element or the bilingual claim...it's just numbers for the most part, although the last page labeling each pictured landmark is in multiple languages. That all seems to be trying to convince parents the book is educational for all the wrong reasons - it's the graphics you want, not the numbers!

    This is an excellent book for young kids who need to learn how to engage with a book. I give it at baby showers and it is always a hit!
