PICTURE BOOK: N Is for Our Nation's Capital by Marie Smith
While our family was in Washington DC I came across some books I wanted to add to our school library.
This line of books from Sleeping Bear Press is one of my favorite non-fiction series available. The books are beautifully done. The content works for both young readers (with a poem for each letter of the alphabet) and older readers (with detailed content for each letter).
N Is for Our Nation's Capital includes discussion of the cherry blossoms, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech which was delivered at the Lincoln Memorial, the White House and the Library of Congress.
If you are planning a trip to DC, or you want to have a souvenir to help you remember a trip, check this book out. If you are a history teacher, there's plenty here for you as well.
4 out of 5 stars
