    Washington D.C Monsters is part of the City Monsters series of books, and the fourth book in the series that I have reviewed. Each book takes a different city in the United States, and teaches children about some of the famous landmarks that the city has to offer. Each page also has a few little monsters for them to find. At the bottom of each page it states how many monsters there are to discover. Some are easy to find, whilst others may take you quite a while.

At the bottom of each page it states how many monsters there are to discover. Some are easy to find, whilst others may take you quite a while. What I like about this series of books is that it combines informative information, alongside something fun for children to do. So they are learning without realising. The illustrations cover the whole page, are bright coloured, and wonderfully drawn too. They certainly do capture the eye. In the Washington D.C book, the US Capitol, there are lots of famous places to visit including:- – Lincoln Memorial – National Air and Space Museum – Kennedy Center – National Cherry Blossom Festival – Georgetown – The Awakening (in nearby Maryland) This series of books are loved in our house, so much so that my son is forever asking if the publishers have released more yet. So when I told him a few days ago that three more have been released, he was elated. The reviews for the other two will be coming over the next few weeks. These books are really fun to read and even-though they are only quite short, they certainly pack a lot into those pages. Reviewed on www.whisperingstories.com

Find the monsters in the book! I can also see the kids looking for the monsters as they visit these particular sites. Some of the monsters can be found almost instantly, some the kids would have to search for a while before they find them. Which can add to more fun with this book.

    This is a great concept for children to learn about the historical monuments and more in Washington D.C. It is a seek and find book with find the monsters on each page and also information on the attraction in Washington. I am an adult and had trouble finding some of the monsters which should make it challenging for children. The monsters are not scary they are actually very cute. The pages and illustrations are vivid and well drawn. Sights include the Washington Monument, National Cherry Blosso This is a great concept for children to learn about the historical monuments and more in Washington D.C.

    Wow.. I don't know what to say about this one. I love when a DC books comes out (being a local), and I try to read them all, but this one is a bit all over the place for me. Let's start with the positives. The range of sites in this book is great. I like that it focuses on places that children will probably go to if they visit Washington, D.C., and I like that they give a few details about each while representing the sites through realistic-ish drawings. Now for my first problem: who is this book Wow.. I don't know what to say about this one. I love when a DC books comes out (being a local), and I try to read them all, but this one is a bit all over the place for me. Let's start with the positives. The range of sites in this book is great. I like that it focuses on places that children will probably go to if they visit Washington, D.C., and I like that they give a few details about each while representing the sites through realistic-ish drawings. Now for my first problem: who is this book for? With the amount of information on each page, I think a book like this would be for young children (3-6). Then, I look at the illustrations and think maybe it could be for earlier elementary school (5-8). Last, I incorporate the look-and-find element of the book, and I think it cannot be for anyone younger than 6. Second problem: the illustrations mixed with the look-and-find are not that great. These illustrations are great on their own, but then you add the monsters and they become both bizarre and confusing. I like a good challenge, but some of these monsters were really hard for me to find. Also, some of them require you to understand the site portrayed in the illustration. If you do not know what the exhibit or site looks like, you might not understand that some of the monsters are hiding in plain site (i.e. the mouse ballerina at the National Gallery). My last problem (which might be a nonproblem by the time publication comes around): this book needs back matter. There are so many things highlighted in red that would fit perfectly in the back with some more information about what they are. Also, some things should be in RED (i.e. the Hope Diamond and the African elephant). It would make this book seem more appropriate for the elementary school child. Thanks to NetGalley and Chouette Publishing for the ARC in exchange of my honest review.

Monsters is a picture book much like Where’s Wally of my generation, except, there’s more facts, and less really hard to find monsters. Well, I say really hard to find, I’m still missing 8 through the whole book, whoops. This is packed full of colour that makes it really entertaining, and fun to look through. All the facts in the book, despite really minor, are all correct (a quick Google search tells you that much), and again, it’s just really fun to look through. It’s nice to see the American monuments laid out and frankly, this could pretty much be used as a monument tour guide, it’s actually pretty well laid out. This is absolutely wonderful and I’m definitely buying this for a few little monsters I know, they’ll love this. Hope the other one in the series, Texas Monsters holds up to the same level.

    The concept behind this book is fantastic - but reading it on a Kindle is NOT. We live near DC, and though we don't take the kids downtown much they were familiar enough with the landmarks to recognize them and get excited about places they'd been. They were especially thrilled with the page about the National History Museum because my husband took them there last week. That said, black and white pictures on a tiny screen made it virtually impossible to find the monsters in the pictures.

That said, black and white pictures on a tiny screen made it virtually impossible to find the monsters in the pictures. The text, to me, was, well... fine. It's a great introduction to DC landmarks and a potentially fun and engaging format for teaching young kids, but to me it falls into that very big basket of kids books that are just so-so and don't particularly need to be revisited. Another two-star read.

    DC would seem the most logical choice to set a find-the-monsters book—other than El Lay—though sometimes it’s hard to tell them apart from the politicians. The first puzzle is at the Capitol, but the scene is so big depth-wise it’s hard to make out if those are monsters in the back or not. There’s a similar problem with the Lincoln Memorial, where the people look tiny and it’s hard to differentiate. On the other hand, the Air and Space Museum, Zoo, and Museum of Natural History were easier to dis DC would seem the most logical choice to set a find-the-monsters book—other than El Lay—though sometimes it’s hard to tell them apart from the politicians.

    I loved the way this book combines information about Washington, DC with a fun monster search! The level of difficulty seems perfectly matched to the age of child who will be reading the book. As a former fourth grade teacher, my students would have loved this book. I work with much younger children now, but I think they would enjoy trying to find the monsters as well. Great job with the illustrations as well as the informative text. *I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchang I loved the way this book combines information about Washington, DC with a fun monster search!

    I read this book with my 8 year old daughter to see what her opinion would be. She is a little beyond the look and find stage but she still absolutely loved this book as well as the rest in the series. She thought that it is a great book for little kids because it was a fun book that taught you stuff too. I would totally buy this book for my nephews and nieces. We had fun pointing out the monsters and we also learned some new facts along the way.

    Washington D.C. monsters was a cute book touring the DC area in a way kids can easily follow. Each page has monsters hidden on it for children (and adults) to find. We had a lot of fun finding the monsters! I would have loved a bit more information about each location, but it was just right for a young child. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this ARC in exchange fornmy honest review.

    3.5 stars in rating might be more accurate. This is a really cute little book, that little kids & adults can enjoy together! The monsters weren't that easy to find either!!

    I have always said that I liked this series. And I still do. It is a quick look at fun places like Washington DC. It’s a travel guide that encourages you to see monsters everywhere you go. Plus, I love when I learn about something new, like the Awakening, a statue in Maryland.

    This is a great way to introduce children to history and fact without making it boring. The facts are kept short and sweet but provide talking points with the children. The illustrations are engaging and bright, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I hope you to see more in the future.

Some of the monsters were easier to find than others which allow for a longevity for the title that is not always found in this type of search and find book. All in all, a worthwhile book to get those little ones curious about the world around them.
