As you may know, last year I published my first children's book Addison's Starfish Adventure and it's been a great learning experience through and through.
One of the things I wish I had done to help with my launch was hire a product photographer. Having high quality product photography is critical in today's world. Yes, I took my own product shots and they came out okay. But sometimes the lighting is off and I don't have a controlled area that professional product photographers do.
I recently went back and had a product photographer take photos of my book. Here are the results from the photo shoot.
There are a ton of amazing ocean books available for kids today. As I was looking at the top twenty on Amazon, they were mostly about sharks and Mermaids. There is a new Jellyfish book available, however it's a novel and not a picture book.
Here are the top 3 books about the ocean that look pretty interesting to me.
The first kids book is about a Beluga Whale. This looks pretty cute and has some good artwork. It's ranked number 1 on Amazon right now.
The second book about the ocean that looks good is a Shark book by Dr. Seuss. You can't go wrong with a book by the Dr.! :)
The third picture book that looked decent is called Three Little Mermaids.
I haven't' read any of these, I am literally judging books by their covers... and reviews of course!
I created my own kids book that is called Addison's Starfish Adventure.
It's a cute story about a girl that wants to find starfish at the ocean. It's an ocean book for kids that discusses leaving animals in their natural habitat and also has activities at the back of the book for kids to enjoy!
The next book I make about the ocean is going to be about a Turtle! I already have the idea outlined and I am working on the artwork right now! I am really excited about the next few books I am working on.

I've been creating art in some form or another all my life and it's what I love to do.
