I have now added another author to my list of favorite children’s authors. I would like to introduce you to Eliana Joy Barnett. Eliana’s writing style is excellent and the story flows well. The book is greatly enhanced by the color illustrations. This is supposed to be a children’s book, but I must admit that I enjoyed it myself. I think all ages will enjoy this book. I personally look forward to sharing this book with my grandchildren. I hope to see more in the future.
