A great book to review BEFORE your visit to Washington D.C. Best if read in hard copy or color capable e-reader device. I have a basic Kindle, black & white, and found it difficult to see the pictures.
My son went to Washington DC last summer, but he did not purchase anything because of room. When he got back, he picked out this book for his memories. He loves it.
I bought this for my dd 13 to take on a trip to DC she totally enjoyed the beautiful photos and it helped her recognize each place as they approached it.
