Paraskevas, Michael Taffy Saltwater’s Yummy Summer Day. 40 pgs, Random House Books for Young Readers, 2013. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK. This book is about a girl who loves go to the beach with her friends. One day they build a sand castle. One of the favorite beach items, a beach ball, gets blown away in the wind. The ball ends up far away and a seagull comes by and puts a towel on the ball so he doesn’t blow away again. When Taffy finds him she is so happy and they build the biggest sandcastle ever imagined. The illustrations were in carton format and I loved them. I liked how they made the sand castle, it was cool! The story was funny and reminded me of playing on the beach with my own family. Pre-K. EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: JL-age10.
