University of Mobile alumni are making the world a better place through their impact on future generations. Learning the virtues of good character is as easy as A-B-C with “The Achiever’s Alphabet,” a new book for boys and girls ages 6-10 by Christian Bolden of Washington, D.C.
Available through Amazon, Bolden’s first book introduces foundational ideals such as fairness, empathy and accountability to reshape how youth view and interact with the world around them.
“Of all the qualities an adolescent can possess, the introduction to positive character attributes are among the most influential factors in a child’s development…The Achiever’s Alphabet takes the reader on a journey of personal growth and core value exploration from A to Z,” according to Amazon. The rhyming book is illustrated by Alexander T. Lee.
Five-star reviews cite the book as “an uplifting read” that is “a great way to teach morals and values, but also vocabulary, at the same time.”
Bolden is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, and is a former staff member for U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi. A 2006 graduate of UM, he is also a certified Project Management Professional, and holds an M.B.A. from Syracuse University’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management. During his career, he has served as a defense analyst, project manager, and government affairs director in Washington, D.C.
