This was a sweet book of a young girl and her summer with her grandfather. Not a lot of words to this so a very simple read. we had more fun looking at the pictures and discussing what we can look for and do on the beach. The kids loved all her little treasures she collects in this book. Also a great lesson is held within. loved the illustrations and the imaginative simplicity to everything. This is a calm read and even if you don't life in near a beach the lesson is still valid and the treasures can be substituted for what to find at a park, etc.
