Christmas in Paradise is a new children's book written and illustrated by Jaime Nicole Hughes. The book is a recollection of Jaime's childhood trips with her family to Florida at Christmas every year. Fun on the beach, collecting petrified shark's teeth, and building sandcastles are some of the memories depicted in the book.
The book was illustrated in ink and watercolor and the text is in a playful handwritten-like font. The combination of these two result in a fantastic children's story.
