I lived in suburban Chicago for 3 years many years ago and
my children would have loved this book when they were young. It is written specifically to intrigue children and to help them understand this large magical city. The trivia facts are interesting by themselves. For instance every man, woman, and child in Chicago eats an average of 23 pounds of pizza a year! And the Brookfield Zoo was the first zoo to use moats and ditches instead of cages. I can just hear a child in the back seat saying "hey, did you know..." and rattling off some cool fact about Chicago.
Are you traveling there? Just want to learn about Chicago? I highly recommend this ebook for everyone. It is a great overview of the city yet detailed enough to really help you learn your way around. And although I haven't eaten there for twenty years, Ed Debevics was our favorite family restuaruant! Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Smashwords.
