Amazing Places

Lee and Low Books

Amazing Places is a great picture book from multicultural publishers Lee and Low that features diverse landmarks and entertainment hubs of the United States through poems and vivid illustrations.

The book is beautiful and educational cover to cover, with a front inside book panel featuring an illustrated United States map, reminiscent of map puzzles, indicating what states and landmarks are featured in the book. States features included Philadelphia, Alaska, Texas, Wisconsin and many more.

My favorites featured in the book are the following:

These and more poems tell all about some of the best attractions, both cultural favorites and entertainment venues such as Fenway Park, the Liberty Bell, the Grand Canyon, and Niagara Falls. While I love the originality of the poems, some of them may be a little advanced for children under twelve and I recommend and adult or older sibling read the book with young children, as young ones may find some of the poetry difficult to comprehend. Fortunately, there is summaries provided in the back of the book, with descriptions of each monument and landmark highlighted, as well as a “Sources” page which provides a bibliography.

If you or your child is a fan of travel, this is the book for you! Check it out today!
