" Marlon guides you through the landmarks of our Nation's Capital. " said.

" Loved this book. Can be enjoyed by children and adults as well. I know my history and still learned a few things. And who knew our Second Lady was such a fabulous artist! Glad to see they think of their pets as family, as do I. Lovely and talented family! " said.

" This book is completely adorable and wonderfully informational. It provides facts about the nation's Capital in a way that appeals to young readers. Having a bunny (a real one, for that matter!) be a child's tour guide of Washington, DC makes the journey memorable for children. You can feel the overwhelming sense of patriotism from the first page to the last as the Pledge of Allegiance is incorporated. I'm reading this to my children. " said.

" Marlon Bundo (BOTUS - Bunny of the United States) takes readers on a tour of the nation's capital - visiting a number of important sites (National Cathedral, US Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, National Archives, White House, and more). The illustrations are cute, and Marlon Bundo is a decent guide, but the book design often places the most interesting bits of artwork right in the gutter where they can't be appreciated. Stop cutting the bun in two! " said.

" I bought this book to donate to my local library. I'm hoping our wonderful small library's Children's program will benefit for having it available. I, or course, had to make sure it was what I hoped it would be. It met my expectations and then some. I even learned from it. Marlon is the perfect guide and just enough information that will help inquisitive minds want to learn more. Well written and lovely illustrations. " said.

"This sequel to Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice-President retains all the charm of its predecessor. The watercolor illustrations lend beauty to the scenes, and Marlon’s gentle nature continues to shine. The tone is much different, though; this book doesn’t focus on any one person, and it doesn’t try to rhyme. Instead, different places and monuments in the Capital are described clearly and simply, and the straightforward prose is still engaging for children. I think most kids would enjoy (and learn from) this unique bunny-guided tour." said.

"A year or so ago, I enjoyed reading about Marlon Bundo, the Pence family’s pet rabbit. Marlon Bundo, helped by owner Charlotte Pence, wrote a book about a day in the life of Vice President Mike Pence. Now, he is out with another book: Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Nation’s Capital. I was really excited to win a copy of the book in an Instagram giveaway.

There are several similarities between the first Marlon Bundo book and this one. One thing I love is that the endpapers in both books feature a carrot pattern — the first has an orange background, and those in this book are blue.

Charlotte Pence (VP Pence’s daughter) wrote both books. Karen Pence (the Second Lady) did the illustrations in both, and I think they’re charming.

While the text in the first book rhymes in most cases, this book has more straight-forward text as Marlon discovers different landmarks in Washington, D. C.

This is a sweet book that will introduce children to our nation’s capital in an appealing way. It would make a nice gift to a child almost ready to visit DC — or for any occasion.

"Marlon Bundo is the Bunny of the United States, otherwise known as BOTUS. He lives with the Vice-President and the Second Lady, Mike and Karen Pence, his “grandparents”. Their daughter, Charlotte, is the owner and author of this series featuring Marlon Bundo teaching kids about Washington DC and the political life.

Marlon Bundo starts by saying “The Pledge of Allegiance”. He then uses the words in the pledge to show the important places in Washington DC that help us learn about the words like liberty, justice, and republic. Marlon takes us to the Supreme Court, the Kennedy Center, Vietnam War Memorial, and Arlington National Cemetery to name a few. Marlon Bundo explains why each of these is an important place to visit and learn about.

Each page has gorgeous watercolor illustrations of these well-known places to visit in our nation’s capital. Marlon Bundo is also visiting all these locations in the pictures as well.

At the end of the book, each of the locations is described with a bit more detail about its purpose and history. This is a great book to read with your kids before a trip to Washington DC or if you want them to understand what “The Pledge of Allegiance” means. In the elementary school where I teach, each classroom starts the day by saying the pledge. This book would be a great way to introduce the importance of the words in the pledge and their meaning.
