For those of you with little ones, this came through the website…
Greetings from Bend, Oregon. I’m excited to share a fun fiber animal book for kids. The children’s book I wrote with my daughter, is now available both as a hardcover and an ebook (apple ibook). It’s about our first little alpacas coming to live at our ranch. We tried to educate a bit about fleece. As much as you can in a little kid picture book.
It can be ordered directly, now, from the Book Baby Book shop in hardcover: https://store.bookbaby.com/bookshop/book/index.aspx?bookURL=Whiskey-and-Zulu-Get-a-New-Home2
Or as an ebook: https://store.bookbaby.com/book/Whiskey-and-Zulu-get-a-new-home
