Sea, Sand, Me!
by Patricia Hubbell
Illustrated by Lisa Campbell Ernst
Published by HarperCollins, 2001
Ages 2 - 4
A young girl describes her day of fun and sun at the beach in a spirited rhyming text distinguished by Patricia Hubbell's delightfully playful language. "We jump, jump, jump / in the curly-whirly wave. / Cold water doesn't scare us / 'cause we're brave, brave, brave." Hubbell has a wonderful ear for sound: the sand is "scritchy-scratchy," the sea is "swishy-swashy." Toddlers will enjoy the spirit of this lighthearted summertime romp throughout the year.
