My uncle and his dog with me on the beach, slowly, I feel much better.

Through illustrating the Starfish Summer children's book, I learned much about starfish. How the starfish grow and live. To learn about starfish, click here.

Book Summary: Mama's girl! Mama's girl! That's what the kids in school call Amy. But this summer Amy's going to visit her great-aunt Jenny at the beach while Mom's away on business. Amy thinks it's the perfect chance to prove that she's not a mama's girl. But Amy's high hope of learning how to ride a bike and making new friends fall flat when Crystal, the only other girl Amy's age, seems to dislike Amy. Does Crystal think Amy's a mama's girl, too? Amy's disappointed at first, but soon she's soaking up the warmth of this quirky seaside community.
