The Seashore Book

  Spending our first summer in a beach town has definitely been a new experience for us.  We actually have to plan time to enjoy the shoreline.  Otherwise, we'd never make it that mile toward the shore.  For those of you who are headed to the beach this summer, I just wanted to give a quick recommendation for this little jewel.

We're half way through, and the boys love the characterization of different animals that Thornton Burgess weaves so wonderfully in his stories.  As I've written before, I do think Burgess is a bit of an acquired taste in reading aloud, but he's worth acquiring a taste for.  The Burgess Seashore Book for Children is one of our top picks for beach living this year.

Give it a try!
