Amazing Georgia is a fun and creative coloring book journey across the 159 counties that make up this great state. Each of Georgia’s counties is celebrated with images featuring the places, animals, plants, and activities that make that county special. As well as the fun drawings, each page includes a short paragraph about the history of the area and the images that were chosen. From the wild east coast beaches of Camden County and the southern swamps of Ware County, to the rich farm land of the plains; from the picturesque Appalachian mountains in the northern part of the state to the big cities, like Atlanta and Macon, and the historic home of our 39th President in Sumter County—Georgia is as unique as it is historic. Come along with author/illustrator Laura Murray on this journey as she shares her passion for the Peach State. You will get to know Georgia in a whole new way!
truly is amazing! Well-conceived and vivid in its imagery. I love that this coloring book is also a learning tool. This book should appeal to young and old alike.
