Good Night, Good Beach

We rated this book:


A family is spending some time at the seaside. Five youngsters share a bedroom with a view of the beach. Morning comes and they go exploring on the shore, examining the plants and watching gulls fly by. As evening comes, one of the children comes inside the cabin. Dad is setting the table for dinner. The other children are still at the shore as waves hush-hush on the shore. The children hide their new-found treasures of shells and sea glass in their room before getting ready for bed. The adults are finishing their day as well. It has been a good day at the beach, but now it is time for sleep.

Author Joy Cowley has written, in perfect meter and rhyme, a charming story about youngsters spending a day at the ocean shore. This is a wonderful story that will quiet the youngest of listeners at bedtime as they get ready to go to sleep. The illustrations by Hilary Jean Tapper are absolutely enchanting. They have an old-fashioned feel to them and are filled with rich details. She uses soft colors that perfectly support the gentle story. This is a real keeper that young ones will love.
