Synopses & Reviews
As rich in entertainment as Washington, DC, is in history, this creative, interactive doodle book encourages young artists to create, imagine, and sketch their way through the capital of the United States. With a style that is distinctly DC, the doodles highlight the historic landmarks and cultural icons of the District of Columbia, from sketching the windows of the White House and drawing a dinosaur at the Museum of Natural History to guessing the shadow of a figure from Americas past. Inspired doodlers can keep the fun going by accessing extra doodles that are available for free online by using the information contained on the pages inside the book.
"This delightful, interactive guide to our nation's capital is part scavenger hunt, part sketchpad. On outings, you might capture memorable moments, reflections and sketches from the whole family by having everyone create, sign and date a doodle." —Mary Quattlebaum, Washington Parent
