From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4
In this continuing saga of the children from Polk Street School, the class is taking a trip to Washington, D.C. During the trip, Emily comes to realize that a generally unpopular classmate has some positive traits; in fact, he turns out to be a good friend. Along with the story, Giff offers a quick tour of the sites. She also includes a section of very brief descriptions of the students' favorite things to see, along with addresses and phone numbers. Even with the present closing of roads in the city and some errors, such as calling the Tomb of the Unknowns by its former name, this is a fun introduction for youngsters making their first trip to the nation's capital.

An easy-to-read chapter book for fans of the series, as well as for those planning a visit.
