Around the World from A to Z
"Around the World from A to Z" is a brain-based alphabet book with sand-covered letters that allow children to create a tactile connection with the letters. The facing page also contains an acrostic poem (to be read by adults) that links the letter with an activity and with a famous site.

The book is also based on the notion that it is never too early to learn to be part of the larger world, and that thoughtful thinkers are aware and appreciative of the wider community of cultures and diversity of landscapes that we call Earth.
