Synopsis

My Washington, DC by Kathy Jakobsen

Vibrant, lush paintings full of elaborate detail bring the capital city to life! A young girl and her friend explore their favorite places in Washington, DC, from the White House to the Lincoln Memorial. They peek inside the National Air and Space Museum, glimpse the Declaration of Independence at the National Archives, and bask in the beauty of the cherry blossoms surrounding the Tidal Basin. With two giant foldout pages, a free poster of the Bill of Rights, a map of the whole city, fun facts, and seek-and-find challenges, My Washington, DC is endlessly enjoyable and educational. Kathy Jakobsen's lavish paintings invite readers to return again and again to this dazzling tribute to America's capital!
