A is for Aviary, a home for the birds; B is for Broadway, from College to Third. C is for Cranes standing tall in the sky; D is for Dogs, wagging tails, saying “hi!” This enchanting picture book highlights landmarks and themes that exemplify Oakland’s unique culture, from the myriad food trucks on International Boulevard to the giant redwoods that stretch up to the sky. Michael Wertz’s bold, whimsical prints and jaunty text reflect the city’s energetic and wonderfully diverse atmosphere. Bursting with civic pride, ABC Oakland encourages children and adults alike to explore the possibilities that “the Town” has to offer.
