Art meets history. I have never been to D.C. and our daughter has not been there either so most of what the book has we know nothing of. Never the less it does not hinder the learning in anyway. When I do not know of a monument or whatever it is I look it up and then explain it in a way that our daughter can easily understand. Some of the pages in the book are very simple. All the student needs to do is simply draw what is asked or copy a piece of US history. Since our daughter loves to draw she quite enjoys this book. If you are looking for something to enhance your history or art class then this would be a wonderful little book to get.
