Do you know Washington D.C.? The nation’s capital attracts people from all over the world–even little monsters! Did you know that? Monsters are masters of camouflage who can easily hide in plain sight. They get lost among the Cherry Blossoms at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, go undercover at the International Spy Museum and even stow away at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum! Have fun spotting them all as you explore some of The District’s most iconic landmarks and sights.
This is a fun and quick introduction for a young child that is perfect for when they are getting ready for their first trip to DC, or even just to start learning about our nation’s capital!. The illustrations show some locations and monuments of DC that kids will visit.
This book is also interactive as it has a search and find element to it: Monsters also visit Washington DC!!! 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.
Special thanks to the publisher for granting me a copy to read and review via NetGalley.
