Creative Animal

Children's Books

As an artist and educator, I'm very interested in getting children interesting in nature. All of my picture books use my artwork and photography to explore different nature-related themes, from bugs (not ugh!) to the fascinating colors of sea creatures in the ocean. These books are available in multiple sizes from Presto Photo, a printing company based in North Carolina. They do great work -- follow the link for each book to get exact pricing and size options.
