Christmas in the nation's capital is marvelous-and Olivia's getting to see it all, from the gorgeous trees sparkling near the White House to the fabulous Sculpture Garden where she and cousin James ice skate on the frozen fountain surrounded by statues. And of course, there are plenty of monuments, memorials, and museums-like the amazing Smithsonian, with the ruby-red slippers from The Wizard of Oz-and adorable pandas in the zoo, too!

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!
