Editorial Reviews

New York Times
Zolotow's words have a special lilt that lingers long ater the book is closed.
Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
In this beautiful story, a boy from the mountains asks his mother to describe what the seashore looks like. In order to achieve this task, the author presents a descriptive poem that takes the reader on an imaginary sensory adventure. Zolotow effectively describes the colors, sounds, and sights of the seashore including watching the sun break through the morning mist, picking up shells at the water's edge, and listening to the sounds of the wind and waves. Detailed illustrations perfectly depict the activities enjoyed during a visit to the beach.
