What's So Big About Cleveland, Ohio?

Ten-year-old Amanda has been everywhere and done everything. Or so she thinks. Her parents have taken her to all the cities of the world: London, Paris, Marrakech, Hong Kong . . . you name it. So when Amanda comes to Cleveland on a family visit, her reaction is probably no surprise:

B-o-o-o-ring.

Overview

Ten-year-old Amanda has been everywhere and done everything. Or so she thinks. Her parents have taken her to all the cities of the world: London, Paris, Marrakech, Hong Kong . . . you name it. So when Amanda comes to Cleveland on a family visit, her reaction is probably no surprise:

B-o-o-o-ring.

“What’s so big about Cleveland, Ohio?” she sneers to her host, ten-year-old Alan (whose mom is best friends with Amanda’s mom). What indeed. Nothing Alan can show her is as big, or as famous, or as fast, or as fun as something else she’s done somewhere else. Until, that is, Amanda discovers that there is something rather special about Cleveland, Ohio—something she didn’t expect at all.

Adelightful introduction to the city for kids of all ages and a warm reminder for Clevelanders who sometimes forget just what makes this a special place to live.

Children will love pointing out their favorite Cleveland places from the book. My own daughter was captivated by the story. The illustrations are perfect . . .
