A gentler, less frenetic, more complex Where's Waldo. With great illustrations.

images of horse drawn carriages in the background.

Young students will enjoy exploring many of the traditions involved in the settling of the U.S.A. Students will be exposed pictures that represent many of the early events that made this nation the great place it is today.

This book would be a great way to incorprate the story of our country's founding to younger aged students that are being exposed to the information for the first time. Pictures tell the story better than words in this case.
