    This picture book takes you on a journey through Washington D.C, our nation's capital. Filled with history and facts, you will learn everything from the size of the White House, who designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and some of the animals housed at the Washington Zoo!

I would use this book while covering a lesson concerning the presidents or Washington D.C. in general; I think I will find a use for this book in my classroom as I feel it is packed with useful information. I think students who have never been to the capital will feel as I did-almost transitioned there through the pages of this book.

    This book takes the reader on a tour of our nation's capital, Washington, D.C., using the alphabet A to Z. Starting with A (Air & Space Museum) and ending up at Z (National Zoo), this book is filled with information about various buildings, monuments, and even the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.. On every page, there are more facts about each subject from A to Z, and it ends with a layout map of everything discussed in the book. I really liked this book!

It was very creative to use the alphabet and share information about places and things in Washington, D.C.. I have been to our nation's capital, so I was familiar with most everything that was mentioned in the book! The illustrations were very well done, and the book was a lot of fun to read. I could definitely use this book in a classroom for history because it mentions so much about people, buildings, monuments, etc., in Washington, D.C.! It would be a good book to take one letter at a time and read a few pages at a time (because there is a lot of interesting information).

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is a long read for 3-5th grades not easily completed in one sitting especially if you want a child to retain the information. I would not recommend this book as a read aloud as that is what I hoped it would be good for. It is historically valuable and non-fiction. It is a picture book and therefore works well in a classroom library for elementary students but in my opinion would be best utilized as research material for a social studies lesson.

    This Is a non-fiction book that presents historic places in Washington D.C. arranged by the alphabet. The places include the Declaration of Independence, the Kennedy Center, the Pentagon and the White House. At the end of the book there is a map that shows where to find all the sites listed in the book.

    There is so much information in this book one can’t just sit and read it in one sitting. Each page is crammed pack full with info of bits and pieces of facts related to the Letter Icon the author has chosen for it. For example for the letter “A” she has chosen the Air and Space Museum. The explanation for the letter is in verse and surrounding that is a plethora of items in the museum with facts relating to that specific artifact.

    This book is about Washington D.C. and has a list of things in Washington D.C. from A-Z. Some things include the Air and Space Museum, the Declaration of Independence, the Kennedy Center, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Supreme Court. The book includes details on all of these monuments and many more. I would use this book in a lesson about the history of Washington D.C.

    I enjoyed this book because it alphabetically catorgorized various places and people that were significant to Washinton D.C. and our nation as a whole. It would serve many social studies purposes throughout the school year.

    Lots of details and cool views like a cut-away of the White House interior. Some of the double spreads work better than others.

    I read New York by the same author and enjoyed it so I thought this book would be equally as good and it was.

    Love this ABC book for older children. It is packed with facts and information about Washington DC, and all that is housed there. This is another book necessary for our study on US symbols. There is so much to learn from this book, one read is simply not enough.
