LillyBear and I have an exiting announcement to make! We now have a published book on Amazon.com: LillyBear Goes to Chincoteague.
Because the book is self-published through Amazon, it is a "print on demand" book. That means it can be ordered and printed from any Amazon website in the world. So if you live in another country and are interested in the book, you can get it without paying for overseas shipping. 😉
Here is a summary of the book:
When LillyBear travels with her family to Chincoteague and Assateague islands, she is amazed by everything she sees in the natural world around her and inside the many museums she visits. As much as she enjoys her days exploring, she starts to worry that she’ll never see the island’s wild ponies. Will LillyBear find all the historical links to the famous pony Misty? What will LillyBear learn about the lighthouse on Assateague island and why the mosquito was nicknamed their official bird? Will LillyBear ever see those elusive wild ponies before her vacation is over?
A heartwarming and informative story about a little bear and her (human) family as they explore Chincoteague and Assateague islands. Learn alongside them as they visit museums, a lighthouse, and all things Misty of Chincoteague. Hear a recollection of Pony Penning Day and see famous spots on the islands through the eyes of a curious little bear.
Filled with photographs, this “living book” captures the spirit of the family’s adventure and the events and places described.
This book was written in memory of a special little girl, Lilly, who was born with Trisomy 18.
