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!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
