"What is the seashore like?" a little boy asks, so his mother brings to life for him the simple beauty of the beach: the whiteness of a gull's feather; the peppermint feel of cold water on his toes; the slow change of light over sand and sea as the sun sets, and the swishswashing of the waves lulling the little boy to sleep.

Charlotte Zolotow's affectionate text and Wendell Minor's stunning paintings immerse the reader in a tender world of sensory pleasures and evoke the rhythm of a perfect day at the seashore.
