Neo-Hobo Train Photos is the first book of photography by Canton Vander Built. The images were captured with an iPod Touch (4th Generation) during a three-day Amtrak trip on the Lakeshore Limited (from Cleveland to Chicago), the Southwest Chief (from Chicago to Los Angeles), and the Coast Starlight (from Los Angeles to Oakland).
The subjects in this collection include the trains themselves, their depots, and the urban and rural landscapes in between.
A IS FOR AFRO: READING IS POWER (2012) teaches children (ages 0 to 6) not only the alphabet, but also how to read and even write. A IS FOR AFRO is the gateway to childhood literacy and the first step toward eliminating the achievement gap in reading specifically and in language arts generally. In the classroom, A IS FOR AFRO is most effective when coupled with the EARLY-READER FUN-SHOP: http://www.excelsusfoundation.com/excelsus/Early-Reader_Fun-shop.html. The follow-up to A IS FOR AFRO is FABLES BEFORE LUNCH (2013), a collection of four original and well-bred tales for children aged 6 and up. These tales are fresh allegories that employ simple, but complex vocabulary, common figures of speech, and themes that show affectivity and personal character. FABLES BEFORE LUNCH is a collection of rich and figurative stories whose value lies in entertaining and educating young children to become savvy readers.
