This is a delightful collection of seaside poems, beautifully illustrated by award-winning illustrator, Nick Sharratt.
With poems such as Goodness Gracious by Margaret Mahy (about a granny who decides to swim to Spain) to the short poem Rocks by Florence Parry Heide (about holding sand in your hand) there is something here for everyone.
Each double page spread wonderfully depicts scenes from the English seaside: from the boat docks to building sand castles, children and adults alike will recognise familiar scenes and situations.
This is a lovely poetry book for adults to read to their toddlers as well as for children starting to read on their own for the first time.
