What makes a perfect beach day?
Seagulls squawking through the sky. A crab carrying his house. And Miranda and her friends, building a castle out of sand.
But at the end of a day at the beach, the seagulls go back to their nests, the crab goes back to the sea, the castle goes back to the sand . . . and Miranda goes back to Mama, who wraps her up in a hug when it's time to go home. Because Miranda and Mama will always belong to each other.

Holly Keller has illustrated a number of books in the Lets-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, including Be a Friend to Trees. She is also the author and illustrator of many picture books, including Island Baby and Horace.
Ms. Keller lives in West Redding, Connecticut.From Booklist:
Miranda and her mother enjoy time at the beach soaking in the sights and sounds. With two other children, Miranda builds “the best castle ever” for a small crab. When the tide washes the castle and crab away, Miranda is sad, but before heading home her mother reassures her that the castle belongs to the sand and the crab to the sea. Watercolor and collagraph (printed collage) illustrations featuring large expanses of sand and sky, with Miranda and the other characters strategically placed, give this a peaceful feel in keeping with the comforting message of the text. Details, such as the salty sand sticking to the child’s skin, allow small children to vicariously enjoy a quiet beach day with Miranda. The final page features a brief text and photos explaining the process of making the collagraph illustrations. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Randall Enos
