The anticipated book "Carousels Abound" arrived in Meridian Tuesday. Some were delivered to a few specialty stores Tuesday morning.
The remaining books have been shipped and will be in other area stores by week's end.
"We're just so excited that the books are here in time for Christmas and we hope everybody will go out and purchase one for somebody on your Christmas list," said Jamie Cater, who spearheaded the carousel horse project.
Carousel horses were placed in more than three-dozen locations around Meridian. Businesses and individuals paid a fee that was donated to Hope Village for Children.
All proceeds from the book also benefit Hope Village for Children.
