Old Manatee A to Z (SSES)


Out of stock



A true community project led by Realize Bradenton, Old Manatee A to Z was written by local children’s author, Ryan G. VanCleave, and illustrated by local artist and illustrator, Don Brandes. Although this book is aimed at young readers, it is intended to facilitate a multi-generational connection between those readers and the adults in their lives as they explore their shared civic pride. The 26 topics explored in the book will provide the reader with an understanding of the rich history of the area. Subject matter includes everything from the Manatee River, to Native Americans, to freedom seekers, early settlers, ice cream socials, and the railroad.
