While exploring the streets, places and attractions of the legendary Brighton Beach neighborhood in Brooklyn, children aged three to six will eagerly learn the letters A to Z as well as the sight words, with their parents guiding them. “ B is for Brighton Beach “ is not a regular alphabet book but an alphabet adventure book. There is a story for every letter, every page.This book journey for parents and children starts, in the alphabetical order, with NY “Aquarium” and “Asser Levy Park”. You will find a lot of words that start with the letter “A”, like “acorns”, “ants” , “avocado”, “apricots”, and, of course, “apples”, and even “airplanes in the sky”. Then you will be walking along the famous “boardwalk” and encounter a lot of “birds” there; you will arrive at ”Coney Island” and find a “cafe” “ where you can buy “coffee” and “cake”; moreover, you will sit at the table and eat “desserts.” You will look around and see “daisies” and “dandelions”; you will pay with “dollars”… This way you will travel from the beginning of the alphabet to its end, when your child will be finally “yawning “ ready for his evening “yogurt”, then open the “zipper” of his jeans and undress… and will be “zooming” towards his/her bed…with “zero” energy left after the day of this extremely interesting journey. The alliteration texts employed in the book reinforce letter recognition and are perfect for a parent and child to share or for a beginning reader to enjoy on his/her own.
