    A LOOK AT LIFE BY THE SEA

    Gail Gibbons, popular author of a plethora of books for young readers from 'Apples' to 'Wolves' is a favorite of both parents and children. He simultaneously educates and entertains as he involves readers in the lives of animals, seasons of the year, holidays, and our solar system. With 'Surrounded By Sea' we're transported to a New England fishing village as spring, a new season begins. Fishermen are busily scraping and cleaning the bottoms of their boats, and lobster men prepare to set their traps. Each lobster man or lobster woman paints his or her buoys a particular color for easy identification. The general store is open and ready for business, and islanders are planting flower and vegetable gardens while others hunt for mussels during low tide. Ferries arrive daily bringing summer people and supplies. This is the season when the island really comes alive with the Fourth of July lobsterbake and the Farmer's Market filled with produce, baked goods and handicrafts. Gibbons closes with vivid paintings of the island in winter when many have sought warmth on the mainland and only a hardy few remain. Highly recommended. - Gail Cooke
