Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Raker Collins
Here are oodles of suggestions about what to see and do in and around the Nation's Capitol. Details are provided for everything from government buildings to monuments museums, zoos and aquariums to nature and amusement parks, and farms to shops. A brief history of D.C. and other historic sites in Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia give the eager traveler insight into what they will see. The reader is also given tips on seasonal packing, arriving in D.C., and getting around the district. Kid-oriented facts, queries, puzzles, car games, illustrations, and tips about topics such as where to get great souvenirs are all here. An appendix gives contact information so that schedules, ticket arrangements, and other information can be obtained before the trip. It is suggested that the child carry the book on the trip and use it and its maps. Certainly, the book's games and puzzles would be good for a car or plane trip, but the book is too big and heavy to carry around and better maps for sightseeing destinations can be found elsewhere. Provides some trivia, such as that the White House was so-named when it was repainted after smoke damage from the War of 1812, the Library of Congress' smallest book is the size of a period, and Mitsitam means "Let's eat" and is the name of a popular American Indian museum restaurant. The parent will want to help an overly ambitious child narrow down the many choices offered in this guidebook to avoid the problem of "museum feet." Reviewer: Carol Raker Collins, Ph.D.

    Great book for kids visiting Washington DC

    This is a great book for parents taking their children to Washington. It is filled with interesting facts, addresses, and other information about the sights. It was easy for my 7 year old to access information and read.
