This is a beautiful, lyrical book about the beach that children of all ages will love to explore. Richard Michelson makes use of many types of verse from ballad to haiku and free verse to lure the reader to the seashore. The verse lulls and lures the reader back to the shore prompting the senses to remember the sights and sounds the beach makes as we take an A to Z walk. Doris Ettlinger's magnificent watercolors compliment the verse and bring the beach alive in all its splendor. The flow of the verse is perfect and kept me moving through the book waiting for yet another surprise to remind me of my own days at the beach. This would be an excellent addition to any library or classroom shelf!
Quill says: This is a wonderful A to Z book that's perfect to share with your youngster who loves the seashore!
