About the Book



"A sandcastle falls with a wave, a seagull swoops down for a precious cracker, a looming thunderstorm means beach time is over, and summer draws to a close. Although most everything changes or comes to an end, a parent's love never does. It endures and reassures no matter what."--Provided by publisher.



Book Synopsis



This lovely and lyrical board book reassures a child that although all things change or come to an end (a sandcastle falls with a wave, a seagull steals a cracker), a parent's love lasts forever.

Today, let's soak up summertime
before it turns to fall.
Gather sand and pack it tight
to build a castle wall.

A wave! Our fortress topples down,
becoming something new.
Everything is bound to change...
except my love for you.

A sandcastle falls with a wave, a seagull swoops down for a precious cracker, a looming thunderstorm means beach time is over, and summer draws to a close. Although most everything changes or comes to an end, a parent's love never does. It endures and reassures no matter what.

A beautiful, lyrical story written in flowing verse. The refrain, which shows that everything fades or changes "except my love for you", is comforting and sweet. There is even a moment of tension in the story, when a beach memento is accidentally broken. It shows that even on a wonderful beach day, things don't always go perfectly, and that's ok! This story is sure to leave you with warm fuzzies. Also, the smooth meter is a pleasure to read aloud. (Best age would be 0-4yrs)
