Alphabet City Melbourne is a new board book for Melbourne bubs by Maree Coote. This clever little book helps your littlies learn the A-B-C through shapes and letter forms found in Melbourne.
Affectionately dubbed 'Son of The Melbourne Book', the author offers her sense of place and belonging to yet another reader group. As well as fun and games in identifying the shapes of letters, there's also fun in eventually seeing them in-situ in the city.

NOVEMBER 19,2013: Alphabet City Melbourne review by
Lisa Hills School Stuff.
EXCERPT: "Alphabet City Melbourne is one of the cleverest little books I've come across.... What makes it so clever is that each letter is hidden in an image, a photo taken of some place or object in Melbourne.... But the tricky ones are the ones that our Preps really liked. I lent this book to one of our prep teachers, and she had a splendid time (and did some very useful revision of letters and sounds) with her class.... Our preps know that they're pretty clever because they can read now, but they were apparently beside themselves with excitement when they were able to puzzle these letters out.
