Here's more info from the publisher:
Washington DC teens take the reader on an exciting alphabet tour of their city using both photographs and words. It's DC like you've never seen it before. D is for Duke Ellington, G is for Go-Go, P is for the Potomac River, and Q is for Quadrants. The reader will learn the alphabet while learning about the city through the eyes of kids just like them!
Made in collaboration with Shootback, an organization that empowers young people to tell their own stories through photography and writing.
Reach Incorporated is a local organization that hires teens to serves as elementary school reading tutors. They have 140 participants at seven schools in the District.
