Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
For children, this book presents a colorful rendition of the nation's capital. The book explores the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, with a view of the money-making process, takes readers into the Supreme Court, Wanders into the Washington Post, and even looks at RFK stadium.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4 Two good large-format books about our nation's capital. In Krementz' photo-filled book, six-year-old Matt Wilson, who lives with his family in Washington, D.C., narrates a tour of the city. A bit of history is related as the Wilsons visit well-known sites such as the Washington Monument, the White House, and the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. Feelings, however, are also effectively conveyed, as when the family visits the Vietnam Memorial where Matt's uncle Joseph is among those honored. The Botanic Gardens, the Washington Cathedral, and the Smithsonian museums each offer a different delight. Matt's child-like (but never childish) narration is effectively used to weave the full-color, crisp, nicely detailed photographs into a satisfying visit to Washington. Munro's book is similar in style and format to her Inside-Outside Book of New York City (Dodd, 1985). Through intricate and detailed although clear and uncluttered illustrations, readers are taken on a visual trip through the nation's capital, beginning with the most familiar. The opening page depicts an outside view of the Washington Monument. From the vantage point of the Monument's observation tower, viewers' eyes are then directed east (where Smithsonian museums and the Capitol can be seen across the mall) and west for a view of the Tidal Basin, Potomac River, and Lincoln Memorial. The Library of Congress, Supreme Court, and Bureau of Engraving are among the sites visited, as are the Organization of American States and the National Air and Space Museum. The visit to Washington concludes with a trip to the Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial. Brief information about each location is provided on the final page, serving to pique children's curiosity about the sites' history and to look again at the illustrations. Unusual perspectives and intriguing factual details are effectively used to create a fascinating portrait of a city. While the Krementz book is more informative, the Munro book is more imaginative. The two books complement each other, and compare favorably to both This Is Washington, D.C. (Macmillan, 1973) by Sasek and Moreman's Touching Washington, D.C. (Conklin, 1976; o.p.). Maria B.
