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.
