A Day for Sandcastles

We rated this book:


A Day for Sandcastles should be every day, in my opinion. I love water and everything with it, including the sand. In this story, a family gets to the beach and right away, the three kids notice a good spot to start building a sandcastle. They work together to build a big and fancy sandcastle, but because different things happen to it, they have to keep rebuilding it and get frustrated. The kids make at least three sandcastles and then have to keep moving it each time closer to their parents because of the water tide. At the end of the day, the kids and the whole family had a great day at the beach and are exhausted!

I don’t think I’ve seen a book like A Day for Sandcastles before; it doesn’t have any words, just pictures. It was easy to tell what was going on by looking at the people in the pictures. If you’ve been to a beach before, you could imagine things about it, too. Because there aren’t any words on the pages, little kids who can’t read can make their own stories and big kids who can read can also make their own stories.
