The Little Big Book of California Dec 28, 2007
I bought the book to give to my daughter for Xmas... she lives in Colorado. . .remind her of home--fun look at California. . .glad that I found it in a boutique store and then purchased on this site (quite a savings). . .
Fantastic and very unusual book, suitable for all ages Jan 19, 2007
This is a wonderful collection of stories and poems by well-known authors. There are also numerous recipes, as well as interesting facts about California people, places, products, and history. Each small page is a different pastel color and contains a background illustration over which the text is printed. None of the stories is longer than a few pages, making it something you can pick up when you have only a few moments to read.
I liked this book so much, that after buying it for myself, I purchased several other copies to give as gifts for friends.
