ABC My Family and ME, An Alphabet book by the kids of the Brooke Jackman foundation is one of the most meaningful kids books which has ever been made. This compilation book takes the readers on a journey through the 26 letters of the alphabet with each letter highlighting a child’s favourite family traits.
Each letter of the alphabet tells a different story together with the drawing done by the child who’s age range from 3-14 years old. Short snippets of their holiday memories, insights to their daily lives, family habits and lifestyles.
This book was featured in this year’s BJF Read-a-thon that was held to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks as well as the 11th anniversary of the Brooke Jackman foundation. The foundation was created to honor , Brooke Jackman, a bright and compassionate 23 year old who was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks before achieving her dream of becoming a social worker. Brooke was an avid reader, and her passion and commitment to literacy and helping children spurred her family to create BJF as her living legacy.
I love the cover which was created by renowned illustrator Cozbi Caberera. It summaries the essence of the book and it’s focus on the family. The individual descriptions that accompany each letter of the alphabet makes it a one of the kind alphabet book which is different from the traditional alphabet book which I have read with the kids.
I feel that this book is a really meaningful book as it conveys the message of family love besides teaching the letters of the alphabet. Also the most remarkable aspect of the book that it was created with the help of the kids to help fund the foundation and other needy kids which the foundation hopes to reach out to.
Do hope over to the Brooke Jackman Foundation to find out more about how they have been helping the kids and how you too can be involved in their foundation.
