Schroeder, Alan Washington, D.C. from A-Z, Illustrated by John O’Brien. NONFICTION PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2018. $18. 9780823436781

This book shares fun facts about America’s capital, Washington, D.C. It takes you through every letter in the alphabet and you learn a lot about the history of this nation. From the Air and Space museum to the Zoo there are a lot of things to learn about this city. There are well done illustrations along with quotes from past presidents and influential people from history.

I thought this was a great reference book for Washington, D.C. I learned a lot of facts and I enjoyed the funny illustrations. I also liked the quotes to corresponded with the pages by theme or the letter on the page. I think this book does a great job of engaging the reader and informing them about historical events and fun facts by taking us through the alphabet.
