Dickie V's ABCs and 1-2-3s, the first little book in the Dick Vitale Children's Literacy Initiative, is AWESOME BABY! It's a children's alphabet and counting book from the legendary ESPN college basketball analyst, Dick Vitale. In the book, children learn their alphabet through high-energy basketball words that Dick uses in his national broadcasts. For example, "D" is for "dunk" and "J" is for "jump". In the counting section of the book, Dick leads kids in counting using colorful basketballs. The book has a special feature (may not be available on all e-readers): a video introduction by Dick Vitale and digital audio clips for all 26 letters in Vitale's own voice "broadcasting" different phrases to encourage the child, including "You and Me-What a Team" and Vitale's signature catchphrase: "You're Awesome, Baby!" The book is illustrated with a colorful menagerie of animal characters and a tiny little version of Dickie V. Dr. Bryan Nelson, a long-time member of the American Academy of Pediatrics says the book is an excellent tool for early childhood development
