JANUARY 6, 2014: Bibilopotamus reviews Alphabet City Melbourne:
"Listen up Melbourne parents! I think I have found the perfect book for you. I was at a first birthday party on the weekend and one of the stand out presents was Maree Coote's 'Alphabet City Melbourne' (Board Book).....The kids loved it and even a few of the adults (me included) issued sqwarks of delight when we found a letter we recognised. What could be better?"
Thank you Bibliopotamus!
NOVEMBER 27, 2013: INTERVIEW::Kids Books Review interviews Maree Coote about Alphabet City Melbourne ... EXCERPT: "I try to get people to take up noticing, which I think is a dying pastime and fast losing favour with the e-distracted young. With their indoor lifestyles, prescribed entertainments, and with their heads stuck in screens and devices. At worst they'll get hit by a tram, at second worst they'll miss out completely on their own time and place. This is their city, their time, their place, and their story. They should own it."
DECEMBER 5, 2013: BOOK REVIEW:: And here's the KBR book review:
EXCERPT:"I love the concept of Alphabet City Melbourne and I think it has an appeal that extends beyond the toddler and preschooler audience that the board book form implies.... Alphabet City Melbourne is a book that inspires children to look at their world with fresh eyes, to see shapes and forms in familiar buildings and structures and to actively engage with their visual environment..." - Susan Whelan, KIDS BOOK REVIEW
