AceShowbiz - Heavy rockers Metallica are helping young fans learn their ABCs with their first children's book.
The "Enter Sandman" hitmakers will school kids on the group's history in new release "The ABCs of Metallica", which was co-written by former music executive-turned-author Howie Abrams, and illustrated by top graffiti artist and Lordz of Brooklyn MC Michael 'Kaves' McLeer.
"Including rhymes and illustrations, 'The ABCs of Metallica' looks back at the history of the band from, duh, A to Z!" the musicians share in a statement.
"Each letter of the alphabet highlights a moment along our journey from (albums) 'Garage Days' to 'Master of Puppets' to fun facts about us."
The book will hit retailers in late November, with a portion of proceeds benefitting Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation, through which they aim to fight hunger and support workforce education.
The project reunites the rockers with McLeer, who previously participated in the group's "Obey Your Master" art exhibit in 2012.
