Review quote

"A small, jolly collection of beach verses by contemporary writers. It is just the right size and shape to stick in a beach bag and flip through after lunch when the sand is too hot to play on."--The New York Times Book Review"Twelve poems... all of which read aloud well. They deftly depict childlike experiences at the beach... Created in bright, cheerful turquoises, yellows, and oranges, the cartoonlike illustrations adeptly capture the atmosphere... A useful collection to own."--School Library Journal"Starts with a perky verse about flip-flops on the beach, and follows with the exuberant "Goodness gracious!," which will be a winner with all children. Most of the remaining poems all merit reading and rereading... This is bound to be a popular edition to the poetry collection. Highly Recommended."--Library Talk "A small, jolly collection of beach verses by contemporary writers.
