BOOK NOOK REVIEWS: Grains of Sand by Sibylle Delacroix

TITLE: Grains Of Sand

AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR: Sibylle Delacroix

PUBLISHER: Owlkids Books, 2018

SYNOPSIS: “On the last day of a family vacation, a little girl is as blue as the sea, and her shoes are filled with sand. What should she do with all of this sand? Together, she and her brother decide to plant the grains of sand, and imagine what will grow. A field of beach umbrellas, to wave hello to the sun? Or a forest of windmills, to fill the sails of a boat? Before drifting off to sleep, the girl has her dad promise they’ll go back for new grains of sand next year.”

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : Warmer weather brings the dreams of fun on the beach for many children. Author Sibylle Delacroix has her book, GRAINS OF SAND, go one step further and takes readers on a journey of what happens when it’s time to leave summer fun behind and go home. She explores the imaginative idea of planting those grains of sand to see what will grow. Young readers will eagerly turn the pages to see if summer time dreams of returning to the beach really can come true! A great addition to any library!
