A new bilingual board book that introduces the youngest of readers to the COLORS of the Bronx!
Where can you find your best friend playing with a RED balloon, tamales from your favorite GREEN cart, or YELLOW pineapple raspados? The Bronx! Bronxtones, the first board book in a new series, teaches young readers about colors through the vibrant palette of the Bronx, as captured by Bronx native Alex Rivera's eye-catching photographs and creative design. The small square trim (7" x 7") and sturdy pages are a perfect format for toddlers, and the content inside promotes language acquisition and concept learning in both English and Spanish. Curl up with your little one for a bilingual story time that helps them reach important developmental milestones.
Alex Rivera is the owner and founder of the Bronxer LLC. He was born near Mosholu Parkway, raised in Hunts Point, and spent his days near the Grand Concourse in the Bronx. Alex pursued his love of art and design at Bronx Community College and immediately started working in the art world. Through his photography and illustration, Alex hopes to show the raw beauty of the Bronx and change the way the Bronx is perceived at home and abroad. His work has been featured in photography books like Streets of New York, and he's in the process of starting a photo walk program for kids in the Bronx. Bronxtones and Bronxshapes are his first books for children.
