Illustrations by the author add wit and tenderness to this sunny summer story.&; For fans of Kate DiCamillo and Rebecca Stead.
Alix and her older sister, Jools, have never been to the ocean. When their parents pack them up to spend a week by the shore, Alix is nervous about leaving home&;but excited, too. At the beach, the sisters make friends, go exploring, and have adventures big and small. To Alix&;s surprise, as the week comes to an end, she finds she doesn&;t want to leave!
Each chapter contains its own miniature discovery&;from picking periwinkles, meeting a crab, and making sandcastles, to exploring the nearby town. Award-winning author Lynne Rae Perkins has beautifully crafted a genuine and engaging novel about sisters, family, and exploration.
A great read-aloud, as well as a good choice for newly independent readers. Booklist said, &;Ordinary pleasures, in the hands of a writer so skilled, are elevated.&; Features black and white art throughout.
