I forgot to mention I did receive my test print of the more affordable "trade book" format from Blurb. It looks great! The pages are not as glossy as the "photo book" format but the colors are still very vivid and I actually think the size of the book is better for smaller kid hands.
The only issue is when I first created the illustrations, I made them for a different size and now the illustrations do not fit on the page as well as I would like. I'll have to reformat them a bit and then create the books. Hopefully, I can finish that before the year is done.
