While scrolling through Instagram I came across Ramona Recommends' IG page and she had this great idea for Linky party. Since school is still in session, I'm not traveling, but I am on the hunt for a good book to read to get the students excited for summer and of course, summer reading. I decided to hit up my library and find something new, something we did not have in our school library and I found "Beach" by Elisha Cooper. This will be on my purchase list for next year. It is also a great book for Mrs. Jump's We Love Books linky.
The beautiful watercolors in this book help tell a great story of a day at the beach. Anyone who has spent time at the beach can easily relate to this book. A reader who hasn't spent time at this beach can quickly get the feeling of being there with the clouds, waves, and sand; its like you can almost feel the breeze in your face. Throughout the book you read and see events that occur throughout the day such as sandcastle building or playing in the waves. The book ends with the day ending and everyone having to go home.
I cannot wait to start reading it to the students and share beach stories. Our summer reading theme is summer is Rock, Roll, and Read. Hopefully this will help get them excited.
