Chicago, Baby!

Chronicle. Mar. 2022. 32p. Tr $14.99. ISBN 9781797207193.
K-Gr 3–Filled with energetic rhyming and colorful, detailed illustrations, this book takes readers on a tour through some of Chicago’s most popular attractions and features. An adorable unnamed narrator and her biracial family experience the zoo, an air show, and even some famous deep-dish pizza. Diverse representations are present on almost every page, and the engaging illustrations give readers plenty to explore. Students will love the cheerful rhyming cadence and features of a city they may have never seen.
VERDICT For lessons on larger American cities, or for armchair traveling in the days of remote learning, this offers more fun than facts.
