California, Here We Come! based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Pam Munoz Ryan wrote "Our California" in 2008 and it is almost identical to "California Here We Come!". This earlier version has a different illustrator (Kay Salem) than the later book. In this story, a girl named Carmen takes the reader on an imaginary tour through famous California cities and landmarks. She starts with San Diego, heads north to San Juan Capistrano, Los Angeles, The Channel Islands, Monterey, San Francisco, Sonoma, and Eureka. The tour then turns south towards Sacramento, Coloma, Yosemite, the Great Central Valley, Death Valley, and finally, Palm Springs. This is a fun, fact-filled book and a good introduction to some of California's famous places and landmarks.
