Overview

Join Clementine and all her friends for a rollicking adventure along the coastline! Help build sandcastles and play in the surf, or admire starfish and seagulls while also learning about how to care for the oceans and the environment. After a wonderful day spent in the sand and waves, enjoy a picnic under the stars and fall asleep dreaming about all the fun you had. Let Clementine be your guide on her greatest adventure so far--to the beach!
What a beautiful, diverse world we inherited, a planet simply bursting with innumerable wonders to enchant and delight us. At the core, Beachcombers is a children's book about gratitude and the need to both contribute in practical ways to an environment we should protect and to imagine the fullness of our origins, so we can shape an equally bountiful future. The story names birds, fish, fauna and other animals as a way to weave a tapestry of specific creatures whose ecosystems need care, and the sounds and rhythms of their pronunciations when spoken aloud will entertain and mesmerize young readers. The children, and their dog, lead us and teach us: we should enjoy the mysterious and fanciful world all around us, but we should also act as caretakers for our environment. After we work and play, we are inspired to indulge our imaginations and learn to dream. After a full day, we rest in our dreams of the future.
"As seen through the eyes of adolescent children, Beachcombers is an enchanting story of responsibility and captures the impact humans have on our environment. Clementine and the young people teach us that we have the ability to change the world for the better--one piece of plastic, and one friendship, at a time." --Javier Rivera, GearUp advisor and educator
"Come along with Taliss, her friends and super dog Clementine as they spend a day at the beach and an evening on the farm! The vibrant illustrations and rich vocabulary provide young readers many learning opportunities. Readers young and old will enjoy following Clementine on her thrilling adventures while learning about the many ways they can be involved with keeping our earth clean and bountiful." --Kelsey Wilson, education specialist, Eastern New Mexico University

About the Author

When children play and explore together, imagination electrifies the landscape. Later as we recall memories of sand on our toes, seagull squawks, and water crashing along pilings-or the camaraderie of working together to fulfill a valuable task-we bring forth our dreams and make them real. Perhaps with a little wisdom, we start to ask about our impact on the environment and wonder if we could make smaller footprints. We learn to become caretakers of the wonders surrounding us. Beachcombers captures just such a moment when young people recognize themselves as part of a delicate ecosystem and appreciate their role in giving back to a world rich in beauty. Kyle Torke lives in New Mexico with his family (wife Sarah and two canine friends, Nut and Bean). We encourage everyone to adopt from a rescue shelter and spay-neuter all pets! Take lots of walks and explore the world with children and dogs, our best guides. Practice generosity.

A painting is a new lens on the world, a vitalized way of seeing the truth of flowers or people. We find our true emotions in the bursts of colorand images that surface from our dreams and our daily interactions. Barbara Torke has been painting since she was a child on a farm on Colorado's Front Range, the great prairies. She studied art and education in college and has a BA and an MA. She taught art at the elementary school level for many years and now is a master teacher of other artists. Barbara lives on the Western Slope of Colorado, at the foot of Grand Mesa with her partner, Dale, and a bushel of cats. She has four children and five grandchildren, along with a multitude of dog friends and grandpets. She loves animals, camping, reading, swimming, and writing. Barbara is best known for her whimsical watercolors and pastels of dogs and pickup trucks. Learn more about Barbara's art at www.BarbaraTorkeArt.com.
