Award Winning Book Series


"We got your new book when we were at the Gulfarium in Ft. Walton in June, and my 6 yr. old granddaughter just loves it --- so do I. We vacation in Fl. almost every year, so the things in the book are very familiar to her. She is eager to get the coloring pages. Thanks for using your talent for children."
