Staff Pick

Larry and Pete are back in Portland, touring the town in alphabetical order. A is for Art Museum. P is for Powell's Books. What better way for a Portland kid to practice their ABCs — and learn all about their city at the same time.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This modern, colorful alphabet book comes on the heels of the regional best-selling Larry Gets Lost in Portland. Larry and his friend Pete see Portland from A (Art Museum) to Z (Portland Zoo), and everything in between. H is for Hawthorne Bridge, P is for Powell’s Books, and W is for Willamette River — children can learn their ABCs and about their hometown! How many letters can you find around you?

Review:

"Portland ABC...will certainly bid for heavy rotation in Rose City Montessori classrooms and progressive playdates....The artist/writer's bold alphabetic take on Portland makes use of local icons like Voodoo Donuts and the Hawthorne Bridge." Portland Monthly
