    For someone who loves Washington D.C. as much as I do, this book spoke to me. The underlying tale of the pup getting lost in the city was cute, but overwhelmingly secondary to the tidbits about the many wonderful sights and locations in the nation's capital. The illustrations are a treat as well, as they are modern and colorful like watching a fast-paced kids documentary. The book stirred up a potent desire in me to visit D.C. again.

    This is the first of the series we've read, but we'll be checking out others. Larry the dog is a cute way to grab kids' attention with a good level of factual data about the city's landmarks and history.

    This is a short and entertaining book about a dog who gets lost in Washington DC. Apparently, this dog gets lost all over the place, since there are a dozen books (so far) in the Larry Gets Lost series. The book takes the reader on a tour of the city, visiting many of the most popular sights and does a good job describing different aspects of the various locations. The author adds quite a bit of detail in each page and this might be a bit overwhelming for younger children, but for those who have This is a short and entertaining book about a dog who gets lost in Washington DC.

The author adds quite a bit of detail in each page and this might be a bit overwhelming for younger children, but for those who have been to these locations or for those who are planning to visit them, it is a very informative and engaging book. I dislike the gimmick of the series, which shows that Larry the dog is constantly getting lost. As a pet owner whose beloved pet has been killed because she got loose accidently, it makes me sad to see this as a recurring episode. But I'm sure I'm just being too sensitive.

    We visited DC this summer and this book was in our Air B&B. My 4 yr old liked it so much I thought I'd get a copy to have at home to remember the trip.

    Perhaps my least favorite so far. Nice illustrations and informative text, but it lacked cohesion. Granted, DC presents a huge variety of sights, but this book felt a bit dry. I did appreciate the distilled explanation of government, and liked the monuments which were highlighted, but the whole seemed to be missing something. The other books present attractions in different light: fun, exciting, majestic, awe-inspiring, intriguing. This book felt much more like a travel brochure. Still worth the Perhaps my least favorite so far. Nice illustrations and informative text, but it lacked cohesion. Granted, DC presents a huge variety of sights, but this book felt a bit dry.
