ABC Adventure book for young readers and pre-schoolers

It is official! I am a published author/illustrator and Jim is a published illustrator!  Our children's ABC adventure book, ;"What Happened That Day?" is published and available at www.faithbooksandmore.com. It is designed with detailed illustrations that incorporate the featured letter in the image.  It engages the child to seek and identify stylized letters as well as standard font. Creativity and learning combine to make an enjoyable experience!

  Enchanted Illusions is acrylic on canvas created by Chris this summer in the 95 degree heat of Atlanta, Georgia.  It was selected recently to exhibit at the Hudgens Center for the Arts in Duluth, GA with fellow Tannery Row Artist Colony (TRAC) artists.
