Nothing's better than a sunny day at the beach, and this anthology of ## poems about playing in the sand and crashing through the waves captures everything that's fun about going to the beach. From sandy picnics ("ham with sand, bread with sand, and cake with sand") to starfish "limbed with flames," the poems in this colorful collection are perfect for young readers. Rocks
Big rocks into pebbles,
pebbles into sand.
I really hold a million million rocks here in my hand.
--Florence Parry Heide
When a mermaid winks
Look for a shower
Children at the seashore
Splashing by the hour
See rain coming
Soaked as they can get
So you don't get wet!"

"A small, jolly collection of beach verses by contemporary writers. It is just the right size and shape to stick in a beach bag and flip through after lunch when the sand is too hot to play on."--The New York Times Book Review
