Mount Rushmore - Now That's Big! by Kate Riggs 2009

Children's Nonfiction
23 pages

Here's an excellent nonfiction book about Mount Rushmore for young children. Kate Riggs gives all the basic facts about the construction of Mount Rushmore in straightforward, simple terms. The text on each page is just enough to learn something, but short enough not to lose a small child's attention. That's the mark of a good children's nonfiction writer! The illustrations are all real photographs, some taken during the actual construction. A great book for 2nd grade or younger
