"Ladybird Johnson Nature Center," will take you to the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Ladybird wanted to set aside land so the public could enjoy native plants and learn about natural landscaping. The colorful photos in the book capture the beauty of flowers, formal gardens, and natural habitats of different areas of Texas.

"Farmers Market Produce," is a book children who are learning to read will want to read over and over. Photos capture the colorful produce brought from local farms, so they are always fresh.
Sandra's favorite book is titled, "Ducks In My Pool," about a family of ducks who chose her backyard to raise their ducklings. For over ten years her family has witnessed the duck's love story.
