Product Description:

Jam packed with photos of missions in CA and a few from NM, AZ and Mexico, add this to a state or history lesson! Photo architectural features are identified by a little cartoon character pointing to “the sticky uppy thing,” a.k.a, a finial. Another cartoon points to “the cavey, holey thingy,” a.k.a., a niche. Each mission is identified, allowing more research. At the end of the book, you learn that there is a hidden image in every photo—view them all over again! Build vocabulary and expose kids to some great architecture! 8.25”x 8.25”, 32 pgs, pb. ~Sara
