Washington, D.C. Is "hometown" for every American. Martha Day Zschock is not only a brilliant artist, whose Journey Around books have captured readers of all ages in Boston, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and more. She is also an educator, who designed her bestselling series to teach children about our great American places. This is far more than an alphabet book. Each page is headed aby an alliterative sentence that evokes an important theme - the "A" page reads, "America's anthem awakens awe" - and each page also features a paragraph of history.
