Moments Carved in Paper, Book #2: eifleS!

. . . $65 (standard edition)
. . . $375 (clamshell edition)

"elfieS!”  is Book no. 2 of our series, Moments Carved in Paper, focusing on a story about each of Ray’s parents. The idea for this book was the catalyst for this entire series of stories built around Ray's favorite selfie photographic portrait from back in the 1940s.

Wouldn't it be nice to take all of your siblings, kids, grandkids and friends, and collect everyone's favorite story about your own parents while they are alive and able to share it? And if you can't think of a good story, you need to make one happen. The kids and grandkids need to make one happen for each of them: fishing, cooking hot dogs, reading books, keeping a secret.
