About the Book

Do you ever wonder what happens to socks that get lost in the dryer? Join Lefty and Righty for the adventure of a lifetime as they sneak out of the laundry room with a destination in mind: a White Sox game! But with so much to do in The Windy City, will they make it to the game in time? Through their fun-filled day, they’ll discover the sights, sounds—and even the tastes—of Chicago, all while encountering a few surprises along the way!
My Review

Fun Rhymes for Young Readers and Parents Too. The author and illustrator create an entertaining story around two little socks venturing out of their family's laundry room and around some favorite family-friendly activities and attractions in Chicago. As Lefty and Righty share their insights into Chicago places like The Bean, Soldier Field, and Navy Pier--as well as Chicago-style hot dogs and the White Sox--readers learn a lot about the city through the fun rhymes, wordplay, and illustrations.

Illustrations and Word Play Bring Smiles. Families will enjoy following Lefty and Righty as they escape during laundry day and enjoy the sights and attractions of Chicago. Kids and grown-ups alike will have a smile at the socks heading to a Sox game!

Would I Recommend The Adventures of Lefty & Righty: The Windy City by Lori Orlinsky? This book is the perfect children's story for families planning a Chicago trip--or looking to remember a past visit to the city. There is even a section in the back of the book that gives added details to the Chicago attractions and activities featured throughout the story. The rhymes are easy to read and filled with fun, colorful illustrations to take readers to The Windy City. We always have a sock or two "go on an adventure" during laundry day and turn up a few days later. This children's book takes an everyday event and makes it magical to entertain and educate readers. I look forward to more adventures with Lefty & Righty.
