Hey parents, need help figuring out activities for your tweens and teens this Summer? Chicago author Melisa Wells has the answers. On Tuesday, Wells released her new book, Chicken in the Car and the Car Won’t Go. The book features nearly 200 Chicago kid-friendly activities including tours, water parks and zoos, sports, shows, shopping and dining options. It looks like a great go-to resource for busy families with no time to plan.

The launch party for the book included a free Wendella Boat ride (page 197) and delicious Chicago food, including Garrett Popcorn (pages 34 and 57). Want to see more photos from the event? Head over to our Flickr page.

Thanks to Melissa for including us in the book. If you want to find out more, you can contact her via Twitter or her Suburban Scrawl blog.
