The youngest readers can learn the alphabet by finding the “accidental letters” hiding all over the United States! The ABCs pop out of roads, rivers, buildings, lakes, and more in beautiful aerial photos taken by the creators of the successful Aerial Bold Kickstarter campaign, now in board book!

Geographer and designer duo Benedikt Gross and Joey Lee have taken the alphabet to new heights—literally! Using satellite imagery and computer technology, the pair has discovered “accidental letters” all over the world. Take a journey around the United States in 26 letters with this special board book.
