Children's LiteratureLocal author Debbie Levy knows that most kids balk at being dragged from one famous site to another. What might make the experience meaningful to them? This question informs Kidding Around Washington, D.C. , which is imbued throughout with a spirit of fun. The photos accompanying the short descriptions of numerous sites should inspire hunts for the actual artifact or detail. After seeing the display photo of Dorothy's ruby slippers from the "The Wizard of Oz," youngsters will want to find the real thing at the National Museum of American History. Visitors will appreciate the first chapter's introduction to Washington history, weather, cultures and homegrown talent (beyond politics) and the substantive calendar of annual events. Youngsters will enjoy the many games, puzzles and writing prompts and will want to keep this guide as a souvenir long after visiting the area. 2000, John Muir Publications, Ages all.
