Ocean City Maryland ABCs

Now and Then

This ABC book is all about Ocean City, Maryland and its only city on the Atlantic Ocean. Once known as a “ladies resort” with hotels first built and managed by women, Ocean City has served many purposes from seaside resort, to fishing mecca, amusement parks, and convention centers. It is still a fun place to surf, swim, see a show, have a great meal, and just plain have fun, especially on the boardwalk!


"This little paperback book colorfully depicts all the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of this fun-filled family resort."



Joanne Guilfoil, Ph.D.

I published textbooks on environmental design and field guide paintings of fish and reptiles while teaching college in Kentucky. My recent publication, FLYING OVER DELMARVA: Spray Planes, Banner Planes & Bi-Planes, was my first hardbound book for aviation enthusiasts, young and old. This is my first activity book for young readers, who may one day become aviation enthusiasts, or at least better readers. 

"When you dig just a little under the surface, a whole new world emerges."
