Rico Austin Author- ARIZONA IS WHERE I LIVE

    ARIZONA IS WHERE I LIVE 

      by Rico Austin     illustrated by Cindy Work

      “ARIZONA IS WHERE I LIVE” is a masterful and learning display of the Sonoran Desert, the mountains, the lakes, the Grand Canyon and of the animals that make Arizona one of the most unique and interesting states in the Union.  The illustrations bring out the beauty of Arizona as displayed by the artistic drawing of pictures and the delicate coloring of pastel colors by Arizona illustrator and artist, Ms. Cindy Work.  This Children’s book is fun and educational for the youngest readers with a slight touch of poetry that will amuse the older kids such as Mon, Dad, Grandpa and Grandma when reading aloud to their precious brood.  I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing, ARIZONA IS WHERE I LIVE.”- Rico Austin
