My View Book Review: Where Is Robin? USA

Title: Where Is Robin? USA

Author: Robin Barone

Illustrator: Robyn Mitchell

Publisher/Year: Diplomat Books/2017

Special Features: Includes a fold-out map of the United States in the back of the book

An enthusiastic young robin packs her bags, says goodbye to her mom, and flies off to see as much of the country as she can. She begins her journey in Pennsylvania. From there she goes to Washington D.C., Tennessee, Florida, and Louisiana, before heading west to Texas, Arizona, California, and Washington. Then she swings around and visits Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts, and finally, returns back home to New York.

Along the way, she sees fantastic sites: the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, the Grande Ole Opry in Nashville, Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, and Hollywood, to name but a few. By the time Robin returns home, laden with souvenirs from every stop, she’s ready to set a date to see the world.

Where Is Robin? USA is a great first introduction to travel and the United States for kids. Every page includes information about the location, conveyed to the reader through simple rhyming text and colorful, engaging illustrations.

This island was home to the Brothers Wright.

Thanks to them in 1903, the first plane took flight.

Look for more books in the Where Is Robin? series.
