Reviews

. . . the digital artwork is consistently dynamic and appealing. Nicely varied, the illustrations range from a bird's-eye view of the National Mall to a picture of the White House with tourists silhouetted against the green lawn. Older kids will learn from the descriptions of sites set within the illustrations, while younger ones will enjoy following the winding, dotted line that indicates Larry's path. This hybrid of fictional story and informational text is a useful addition to the Larry Gets Lost travel titles for the picture-book crowd.
Booklist

This is a book that reinforces learning and history and is a fun, unique story. Kids will be engaged and curious as they turn the pages to follow Larry and read the facts presented; they will not even realize how much they are learning! This reviewer loved the "Get more out of this book" section at the end, which suggests additional ways to use this book as a learning tool. The illustrations are colorful, detailed and realistic. Children will certainly spend hours reading, exploring and repeating all that they learn from this wonderfully engaging book.
