Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Whatever your age, our national's capital offers an overflowing list of places to visit. In her twelve day of Christmas visit, Olivia doesn't get to see them all, but she does go skating on a frozen fountain and see at least her fair share of monuments, memorials, and cool museums. A splendiferous picture book series that just keeps on clicking.

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Holiday tourists and denizens alike will relish this "capital" riff on the popular Christmas song. Born in Washington, D.C., author Candice Ransom clearly enjoys having her girl character, Olivia, introduce readers to this festive city. In town for the holidays, Olivia sends a series of chatty letters back home and provides details about the things she mentions in her version of the song. For example, "5 dollar bills" refers to Olivia's trip to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where paper money is made; "10 agents spying" sees her skulking through the International Spy Museum. Colorful illustrations by Sarah Hollander add even more pizzazz to this playful guide. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum

    Wonderful Book! Highly Recommended

    This book is a great way to learn about our nations capital and a little history. It will appeal to boys and girls of all ages. I took the time to read about one day in Washington, D.C. each of the last 12 days before Christmas bread to my classes (7th grade Social Studies) and we sang the song. They loved it. My grandchildren received it for Christmas. I look forward to reading it to them!
