This great series is so much fun, the rhyming is perfect for reading to little ones. The additional information is a super teaching tool for older kids and just plain good information for adults. These books can be used prior to touring the cities or just to learn and enjoy what attractions are in some interesting cities. We have the entire series and are awaiting new additions! LOVE IT! We even have the Larry plush dog...
