To call this book a beautifully illustrated book of a detailed, guided "A to Z" tour of many interesting Boston sites and events in history - only begins to describe a book which you and your children will want to read again and again. Each page includes a main illustration with explanatory text and additional "factoids", an insert with the main "alphabet text" and illustration, and a small detail illustration with a location key. From "Fans flock to Fenway" (the curse of the Bambino) to "Sun shines on solemn sadness" (memorials such as the etched glass towers of the New England Holocaust Memorial) to "Zoodopters adopt zoo animals" (Franklin Park Zoo), this A to Z journey will inform, entertain, and capture you, like no other.
