Because most of the books about Arlington are written for adults, this picture book helps young students learn past and present history of the unique county they live in. The book is being provided to kindergarten teachers for their study of the Arlington community. Copies are also being sent to school libraries.
Additional copies of the book are available for purchase through the Social Studies Office and will be shipped through school mail or may be picked up at the Evelyn Syphax Academic Center, 2110 Washington Blvd. Schools are welcome to request a quantity of books to sell at school book fairs or school events. The books must be sold for $5.25 each which is the cost of printing each individual book.
