Metallica fans can now look forward to sharing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame metal band with their kids while also laying the groundwork for literacy.

The ABC's of Metallica is coming November 26 in book stores and online. The children's book is brightly colored and features hilarious illustrations of the four Metallica band members.

Written by Howie Abrams and illustrated by Michael "Kaves" McLeer, The ABCs of Metallica teaches the alphabet using moments from the band's history.

"Each letter of the alphabet highlights a moment along our journey from Garage Days to Master of Puppets to fun facts about us," the band's website says.

A portion of the proceeds of book sales will go directly to the band's All Within My Hands foundation, which provides workforce support and fights hunger in communities around the country.

The book is also available in bundles with a T-shirt. For more information and pre-orders, go here.

Metallica is on tour in Europe through August. In October, the thrashers head down under for their final dates of the year. Get all the tour dates here.
