mirandaOn a hot summer day, Miranda enjoys a great day at the beach with her Mom.  She listens to the seagulls squawking, sits on a sandy beach as the surf washes over her feet, discovers a hermit crab, and builds a lovely sandcastle with other children.  As this delightful day comes to a close, Miranda learns that as the crab returns to the sea, the sandcastle dissolves to become part of the beach again, and Miranda must go home with her Mom.  Summery illustrations are done in watercolors, collagraph, and printed collage, and use a variety of hues that are bright and breezy.  The last page shows how the author/illustrator made some of the collages. A sweet and enjoyable story to share with a group or one-on-one.

Picture Book, recommended-  Anne Beier (Hendrick Hudson Free Library)
