Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Is the premise that counting will make you sleepy and ready for bed? Perhaps! The setting is Washington, DC—our nation's capital. There are of course items very specific to the city—one White House and four national landmarks, but the rest of the items cited could really be part of any major city—dinosaur skeletons, children on a carousel, visitors taking pictures, animals at the zoo and children ice skating. With all that is unique to DC, the author and illustrator should have come up with things or activities that were more relevant—3 or 4 theaters at Kennedy Center, or multiple cherry trees along the tidal basin instead of the two shown (why not the two houses of Congress), money printed at the Bureau of Printing and Engraving (a 5 dollar bill or 5 single dollar bills) and so on. An easy to read bedtime book, but a bit of a disappointment if you want to know more about Washington, DC and its uniqueness. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
