KIRKUS REVIEW

Not a routine Washington guidebook, but she highpoints a number of things that visitors in the early teens would find stimulating. With the Washington Monument as a center, she includes the Capitol and the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, the Pan American building. Then she wanders a bit afield, to Mt. Vernon and Arlington, to Annapolis, Bolling Field, the War College, the FBI building, the airport, the zoo. Then back to more routine places, -- the National Bureau of Standards, the National Academy of Sciences, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the Archives, the Folger Museum, the Smithsonian Institute, the Library of Congress, the Department of Justice. Tucked in are bits about the Girl Scouts Building and the Junior Red Cross, about art galleries and churches.
