Ta-DA!! Available at your favorite bookstore or dot-com NOW . As the flap copy says:

What are ABCers? They’re Book readers, and Friend greeters. They’re Jump takers, and Noise makers. ABCers are just like YOU and just like ME. And the more they do, the more they learn their ABCs!

Here’s what Publishers Weekly says:

“Five children exit their brownstone buildings to explore the neighborhood in an uplifting alphabet book. From sidewalk to playground, the children take on different roles based upon the play activity of the moment: “P is for Piggyback riders. Q is for Question askers.” Muted colors, strong ink lines, and chalky backgrounds create a feeling of serenity and open space, despite the city environment, while the children’s expressive features and bright clothing highlight their creativity, movement, and joy. An ideal read for a sweet summer afternoon – directly followed by outdoor play. Ages 3-up.”

My personal favorite spread of the book is this cool MAP! You can follow the kids through the alphabet while reading the text or just hang out with the map and sing your ABCs for the whole world to hear.
