What a Capital Idea!

For a realistic (virtual) tour of something closer to home, use these books and links to visit our nation’s capital:

We’re There! Washington, DC, by Elizabeth Skinner Grumbach

Capital!: Washington D.C. from A to Z, by Laura Krauss Melmed

Journey Around Washington D.C. from A to Z, by Martha Day Zschock

TheCapitol.net – pictures, maps, sites to see, and more

The Wall, by Eve Bunting

Underground Train, by Mary Quattlebaum

And if you have a chance to visit Washington, D.C. in person, check out the free walking tours to learn more about the background, layout, and historical importance of this place. This was one of the highlights of my trip a few years ago.
