*****= An all-time favorite

Atheneum Books for Young Readers, New York, 2003. 44 pages.

Capital tells the history of the city of Washington, D. C. The author tells about the development of the plans, as well as how the city has changed over the years. He focuses on the Washington Monument, the Capitol, the White House, the Lincoln Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial, but she also talks about the overall plan of the city and the National Mall. I didn’t realize that the Capitol Dome was much smaller before 1856.
This book is an interesting and informative story of our nation’s capital city and the ideas going into its construction. It made me proud to be an American!
