1001 Things to Spot in the Sea – by Katie Daynes.

This excellently illustrated book will fascinate young children who love the sea and its inhabitants. Each two-page illustration depicts a different ecosystem with certain species that children can identify and count. A great way to get kids interested in ocean or marine biology. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

Legendary Locals of Fort Myers – by Gerri Reaves.

This book offers an excellent view into Fort Myers’ past by providing brief biographies on many of the individuals who made a memorable impact on the community.

Reaves, a local historian, uses images from historical archives, family collections, and her own contemporary photographs to weave together the story of Fort Myers as told through the lives of its most influential citizens. Readers will delight in learning about some of the unique people who added such character to the area.

Images of Motoring: Ford Dynasty a Photographic History – by Michael W.R. Davis and James K. Wagner.

Using over 200 photographs directly from the Ford Motor Company archives and other personal collections, this book provides an intimate look into the lives of the Ford family and their impact on the automotive world. Some of these never-before-seen photos are truly worth a 1,000 words and will fascinate both the casual reader and the “Ford buff” out there.

These books are available for purchase in our Museum Store or in our online store.
