This book is so much fun to read because it is filled with clues that keep you engaged. The story is very simple, of a young boy on a scavenger hunt through though important parts of the country, but on each page there are so many things to look at. The author has hidden famous quotes, pictures of important figures in american history, and many other things we are supposed to find.
I have used this book to introduce a theme of Patriotism to kindergarten. They had so much fun with it and had so many questions about the different things they saw. ( )
