Getting a Head Start with the most important skill in the education process.

“B IS FOR BOXING” is a fun way to teach our children the alphabet and reading by using this colorfully illustrated book with the sweet science theme.

The great George Foreman, former undisputed heavyweight champion and creator of the George Foreman Grill has 10 children and 14 grandchildren.

Big George says, “B IS FOR BOXING” is an interesting book and a fun way to interact with young children, teaching them the alphabet and how to read.”
Great boxers featured in book include Muhammad Ali, Julio Cesar Chavez, Sr.,
Roberto Duran, Big George Foreman, GGG Genady Golovkin, The KlitschkoBrothers and Marvelous Marvin Hagler.

Former number one welterweight contender and currently promoting boxing in New York and Detroit, co-author Dmitriy Salita uses the book to teach his two beautiful daughters about his sport.

“As a boxer and a father, I see this book as a great way to transmit the boxing vocabulary to the kids through this educational pictorial while teaching them to read?”

Educator Michael Salita says “parents are amazed to see their children acquire reading skills at pre-school age by using our book. There is a great sense of gratification in knowing that mom and dad are responsible for giving their young ones this head start.”

Co-author Bill Caplan, father of 5, grandfather of 9 and great grandfather of 5-year-old Logan says, “our little boy just started kindergarten and he already reads thanks to B IS FOR BOXING. He’s doing really well at school.”

What better gift for a child than the gift of reading can an adult give a child?

B IS FOR BOXING can be purchased at Amazon.com, sentrumbookstore.com/about/, eastview.com and Kalinka and Saint Petersburg Bookstores on Brighton Beach.

“I couldn’t tell the difference,” Dr. Lili-Naz Hazrati told ESPN of the comparison between Mirra’s brain and the brains of athletes from other sports who were living with CTE at the time of their deaths. More at nydailynews.com
