After an abnormally cold and wet winter (great reading weather!), perfect spring conditions (great beach-reading weather!) have arrived in Southwest Florida. We are enjoying our wonderful wrap-around porch in our new location, where we have hosted several book-signings and often find customers enjoying their new purchases in our comfy Adirondack chairs.
Two wonderful new children’s books are now available: Helen Ketteman’s Swamp Song ($17.99) is charmingly illustrated and lyrically written for young children. “Down in the swamp where the cypress grows, old man gator starts tapping his toes…” begins Swamp Song.
Jane Kirschner-Tuccillo’s Annabelle from Sanibel ($12.95) grew out of the author’s fond memories of visiting the Island Bake Shop on Sanibel in the 1950s and tasting her first-ever piece of key lime pie there. She has included her secret recipe for the pie in her story.
