Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Cappy Tail's Capitol Tales is an educational children's picturebook that teaches young people about the United States Capitol, with guidance from the cheerful squirrel Cappy Tail. Young readers will see a brief history of the Capitol and its various rooms, and how it has changed up to the modern day. Though gentle, hand-drawn color illustrations fill most of Cappy Tail's Capitol Tales, a handful of photographs enhance this delightful celebration of America's governmental seat. Highly recommended.

It arrived before expected. However, it said nothing in the description about being an autographed copy to the original owner. Book was in good condition and while quite detailed for a five-year-old to read. It will be fine for someone to read to them and explain.

Nicely written. Drew in the kids and filled with tons of extras for them to discover each time they read it. Very educational. Inspired them to learn more.
