Mother Beach (The joy of finding beach glass)

Written by: Patty Merski

Illustrated by: Chanda Patel

New release

Readers are invited on a quiet walk along the shoreline with the narrator, who visits and pays homage to an old friend, Mother Beach. Lovely pieces of colorful, weather-worn glass are picked up along the way, and carefully inspected within the reflective verse. Mother Beach has a kindly way of embroidering meaning into this everyday activity cherished by so many. Freehand sketches and watercolor washes provide the backdrop of this quiet, universal tale. Young listeners will enjoy the easy rhythm of the verse as they search the pages for hidden treasures. Back matter includes fun facts about color and origins of beach and sea glass.
