Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know there are 22,000 items submitted to the Library of Congress every day—and only half are accepted? Did you know that the Old Executive Office Building is named after Eisenhower because he saved it from the wrecking ball? This easily carried Fandex guide to Washington, D. C. is filled with interesting trivia about the nation's capital. Each of the almost three dozen cards in the fan covers a separate museum, monument or neighborhood. Unusual places are included as well as unusual facts. A fish vendor at Eastern Market tops the card about the Capitol Hill neighborhood; the National Archives features a Lewis Hines photo of an incredibly strong steelworker from the 1920s. A colorful Osage headdress is featured for the brand new National Museum of the American Indian. And there are cards on the Korean War Memorial, Georgetown, the Spy Museum, the Hope Diamond and the Watergate. It is a fascinating compilation that makes readers want to find sites that are off the beaten path. Perfect for browsing, especially for classes or families preparing for a trip to Washington. 2004, Workman, Ages 6 up.
