An Island Scrapbook: Dawn to Dusk on a Barrier Island

by Virginia Wright-Frierson

Published by Simon & Schuster, 1998
32 pages
ISBN: 0-689-81563-8

Ages 7 - 11

On their last full day of vacation on the island, Amy and her artist mom rise before dawn so they can enjoy all the natural wonders it has to offer, as well as reminisce about their island experiences. Both mother and daughter keep a scrapbook of sketches and paintings they've made and their observations about nature. Their last day is filled with new experiences to add to their scrapbooks and, best of all, they are present when the baby sea turtles hatch and head for the ocean. An outstanding design combines watercolor paintings, adult and child sketches, and hand-written notes to give the book the appearance of a scrapbook. CCBC categories: The Natural World.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
