The beauty and diversity of America are celebrated as three children, their parents, and their dog travel across the country (47 contiguous states, Washington, D.C. plus Alaska and Hawaii). The pages are alive with a pleasing potpourri of past and present landmarks, natural wonders and portraits of influential individuals. Every spare inch of space, including decorative borders, accommodate memorable quotations, song lyrics and historical data. There are enough visual details and fascinating facts to keep children absorbed for hours. All ages.
