If you want to share pride in your city with children, it really helps to make it fun. Author Mark Darden has written a book that showcases the best places in Cleveland and does it in a fun way. The story Elijah Goes to Cleveland focuses on one young boy’s favorite band, “The Gateway Escape. He’s discovered something exciting when he and his parents travel to Cleveland to visit his grandparents. The band is giving out free tickets by way of a scavenger hunt. He convinces his grandparents to take him to the town’s famous locations to get the tickets. They try all day and aren’t successful until the band shows up at the park and gives them all tickets and back-stage passes. I like that the book teaches that cultural places, zoos, and parks are important to visit. The book includes a nice map in the back which will be wonderful for those readers to reference if they visit Cleveland. I also like how the book includes grandparents as part of a strong and loving family.
