Adriane Doherty, owner/publisher for Rubber Ducky Press & author of ABC INDIANA, ABC Ohio, ABC Yellowstone, highlights several features of the ABC book series that stand out: 
• A search-inside feature. There is a hidden rubber ducky is on every page. This is fun for kids and parents, but also serves a purpose of keeping kids engaged with the page. Great for all kids, but particularly important for kids who have attention challenges.
• The sans serif font used is easier for children to read, especially while they’re learning the alphabet. The last page shows all the letters together in both upper and lower case.
• Simple illustrations with bright colors help draw in even the earliest readers to the page.
• Every letter (even Q, J, and X) have its own page
