Mother Beach: The Joy of Finding Beach Glass

Mother Beach: The Joy of Finding Beach Glass

Countless individuals walk beaches daily searching for frosted nuggets sea glass. Readers are invited on a quiet walk along the shoreline with the narrator, where they visit and pay homage to an old friend, Mother Beach. Several pieces of colorful, weather-worn glass are picked up along the way and carefully inspected within the reflective verse. Free-hand sketches and watercolor washes provide a lovely backdrop for the author's personal journey of discovery and wonder. Young listeners will enjoy the easy rhythm of the verse as they search the pages for hidden treasures. Back matter includes fun facts about the color and origins of beach and sea glass. Beneath the matte-laminated, illustrated jacket is a hardcover of textured, speckled oatmeal paper and the glistening face of mother beach.
