This One Summer

Rose and her parents have been going to Awago Beach since she was a little girl. It’s her summer getaway, her refuge. Her friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had, completing her summer family. But this summer is different. Rose’s mom and dad won’t stop fighting, and Rose and Windy have gotten tangled up in a tragedy-in-the-making in the small town of Awago Beach. It’s a summer of secrets and heartache, and it’s a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.

Bebe Goes To The Beach

bebeMama leaves the shopping behind to spend a relaxing day at the beach. But sweet Bebe won’t sit still! He toddles after the waves, chases a bouncing pelota, and even surfs on a sand sculpture. When Bebé finally tuckers out, Mama gets her chance to soak up el sol.     Mama and Bebe spiced things up in their first book together, Bebe Goes Shopping–and now they’re at it again!     Includes a glossary of Spanish words.

Sand Sister

When lonely Paloma goes to the beach and wishes that she had a sister to play with, the girl she draws in the sand comes magically alive, and at day’s end her parents give her the good news of a new baby on the way.

Rita and Whatsit at the Beach

Rita and Whatsit are off to the beach. Rita is looking forward to flying her kite, building a sand castle and sneaking up on Whatsit. Whatsit is looking forward to chasing crabs eating sugary things and lying in the sun. The day doesn’t go quite like that it’s much more fun.

Mokie and Bik

Twins, Mokie and Bik, live on a boat  docked somewhere in Australia. They are looked after by a nanny because their father is away at sea and their mother is an artist. Mokie and Bik are always underfoot or overboard. The twins play on the beach with their dog, help a fisherman unload his catch for the day, and enjoy energetic games of hopscotch on the deck of the boat.
