Written in rhyme, with a quirky use of adverbs for every "I love you," AMERICANLY is a lullaby about the United States.
The sunny illustrations of popular landmarks (the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Bellagio fountains) invite close inspection. Thick pages with rounded corners—like a board book—make AMERICANLY perfect for toddlers.
America is experiencing such a divisive presidential election that reading this cozy book about the entire country made me a little emotional. This picture book road trip could not have come at a better time.
