This book has such sweet illustrations that go along with the song "America the Beautiful".
It's a great book to share with little children.
The red balloon takes a trip across America.
I love the illustrations. They are just beautiful.
At the end of the book there is a page that tells you about the online experience. It's kind of fun. It has quick and fun facts about each state, and printables to go along with them. They are fun. This is a great idea to teach kids about the beauty of America.
