Laura Schaefer knows how to capture her audience. Any kid who picks up this book in anticipation of a trip to Chicago will be completely sucked in by page six. The list of historical facts is right up an 8-12 year old’s alley (think Scarface and Al Capone).

The illustrations and photos, maps and fun facts are a fantastic complement to the vast amount of information packed in to this book. City attractions are listed with kid-friendly highlights noted in each. There is something for everyone, from Six Flags to the Chicago Public Library and Wrigley Stadium. There is information about free outings to see public art and some of the famous buildings in the city and so many ideas for great places to eat. Most of the sections contain hyperlinks to things they might want to know more about like John Dillinger or the Billy Goat Tavern.

If kids aren’t careful they could find themselves becoming educated on their vacation, all the while providing parents with fantastic ideas about where to go next.

Even adults will learn more about this fantastic city than they ever knew, thanks to the organizational style and fun format of this book. The only drawback is that you might need to extend your stay for a few more days in order to take advantage of everything this city (and the guidebook) have to offer.
