It's a Seashell Day
Winner of the Florida Book Awards' Gold/Reichert Award! Sunny-as-a-summer-sky rhymes chronicle a mother and son sharing a day of sand digging, seashell collecting, and seashore exploring.

A spread of seashell facts caps off the story. This captivating, narrative nonfiction title featuring nature and counting is an ideal fit for home, preschool and kindergarten bookshelves. Pair it with the author's beloved It's a Firefly Night for a delightful day-to-night duo.

"Beautifully rendered illustrations, which use cut-paper and collage techniques to create bright, attractive beach scenes ... A charming beach-day book to share with a young child beginning to show interest in the natural world." --Kirkus Reviews "This book's illustrations are truly gorgeous, done in a highly detailed cut-paper collage. Bright, joyful colors and sand that appears to have a true "sandy" texture also contribute to the visual appeal... Discovering the purpose of shells for small marine animals may inspire some young readers to learn more, as might the beautiful of shells the boy displays at the end... A delightful purchase." --School Library Journal
