Amazing Illustrations! I read this book to my granddaughter and she was held captive by the illustrations! They cover the entire page. They were so clear and colorful! I love the way the author described her love for the Gulf Coast. That's how I feel about it! I sent a copy to my grandchildren in Calif. I'm hoping that it will make them want to come and see The Gulf coast for themselves. But until then they can live it through each page of the book! I truly recommend this book! It is sure to be on the best seller's list!😍 Read more
