Read this in Bryant park while trying to keep clear of a pigeon cooing aggressively at another one and circling my reading space / i thought this was gonna be a story of a boy n his dog exploring NYC but turns out the dog gets LOST honestly is that kind of trauma appropriate / lots of superlatives and tidbits e.g. Did you know radio city music hall is the largest indoor theater in the world?

Love this series that teaches kids about geography and history. Perfect if you have littles and are planning a trip. I also really liked the books featuring Los Angeles, Alaska, Chicago, and Seattle.

Recommended.

"Larry Gets Lost In New York City" is a children's picture book that works perfectly as an introduction to the culture and history of NYC. There are two stories within the book. There is the story of Larry, the dog, who is parted with his owner, Pete, at the train station. Readers will follow Larry on his mission to find Pete, and will also explore the hustle and bustle specific to NYC. There is also a running commentary written as captions giving facts about the city's most well-known landmarks ...more

My favorite in the series so far, the bold colors and graphic jumbles of illustrations reminded me of the Big Apple. This book somehow organizes the important sights and sounds of the city into something manageable for kids, and adds a fun layer of story too. Cute illustrations with adequate rhyming text. Teacher resources included.

There are some really cute illustrations in this, and I enjoyed our tour of New York. I hate to see any little dog get lost, and his travels were a bit unrealistic - several of the sites were presented in such a way as to make them seem like they're right next to each other, when in fact they're across the island. Not that spacial accuracy is what this book is going for, but it was one comment I had. I did like that the little boy found the dog in the end, but I wish the story could be told with ...more

This is a favourite in our house. An (almost) every night read, thoroughly enjoyed by my 2 year old!

Part of a series in which a dog gets lost in a specific place. Good geography and history tie-ins.
