A little girl is going to the beach with her mother and her father. There are so many things to experience on the beach. There are seagulls to watch, waves to splash in, sand to play in, and shells to look for.

In this board book, warm and expressive illustrations provide a perfect backdrop for the text. With just two words on each double page spread, the author introduces her young audience to some of the things that they might encounter if they spend a day at the beach. She highlights words such as "waves," "seagull," "towel," and "lifeguard."
