    Opening with a poem comprised of clever, absurd and unique names of American towns, Tour America is a whirlwind tour of sights in half of the continental United States Following the path of motorcyclist poet Siebert and her husband, the poems take up from New Jersey, speed north through New York and New England, across the Midwest, down the west coast, across the southwest and back north up the east coast, coming to rest at the Washington monument in Washington, D.C Just like a video game that a [...]

    This book is filled with poetry about different landmarks in the United States, including the Washington Monument, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Badlands The poems rhyme and flow really well, while still teaching the reader about that particular landmark I also like that the book includes a map of where these different landmarks are, as well as a small, non poetic snippet about the history of the landmark This book is definitely very educational, and the kids would love to hear about some of t [...]
