The Official Cleveland ABC Book

ISBN: 978-1-889748-21-4  (Elephia Press, Hardcover, 56pp)
Release Date: February 19, 2019

Inspired by the beauty and soul of Cleveland, The Official Cleveland ABC Book depicts the wonders of Cleveland while teaching younger children the alphabet and about the city as well. The title presents a fun way to learn the alphabet while seeking to instill local pride, helping to create associations in young minds between the letters of the alphabet and familiar places, things, and role models.

The words represented by each letter are common nouns, so children throughout the English-speaking world will learn regular words while using the imagery of Cleveland for visual references. Each letter of the alphabet corresponds to one word and a question under each word is presented to stimulate discussion with the child. Finally, being a photo book with colorful text pages, the title represents the confluence of visual stimulation and beauty, positive and inspiring documentation of Cleveland, and an important educational resource for young developing minds.

Availability: The book is available from numerous retail stores around Cleveland. Additionally, the book may be purchased online.
