Children’s Book: On the Loose in Washington, DC

washington dc children's book

With simple rhymes and colorful, highly detailed images, cartoonist Sage Stossel creates a “Where’s Waldo?”-style hit, setting animals free from the National Zoo and challenging children to find them in settings from the National Mall to Georgetown, Dupont Circle, and the Air and Space Museum. Children will have a ball helping the keeper find a monkey at the Library of Congress, a kangaroo at the Supreme Court, or a Hippo in the Tidal Basin. Over 100 animals are hiding cleverly in favorite DC locations in this colorfully-illustrated rhyming picture book. [Click here to buy the book.]
