It’s Sandcastle Building Day!
This story is a snapshot of a family’s fun day of playing together at the beach. The whole family is eagerly involved building a beautiful sandcastle together.
New Characters, Same Author
You will not encounter the fun and whimsical characters from The Pelican Family Series in this out-of-series book. But you will find them in the other books on the site.
In It’s Sandcastle Building Day you are immersed in a family’s journey to the beach, as you enjoy the gorgeous illustrations of artist Cathleen Abalos (Facebook, Instagram), and author Shirley Castro’s short, rhythmic, repeatable phrases, designed to help kids read along.
You’ll join right in with the family’s fun as they gather up the important things to take with them, and then head to the beach to build their sandy masterpiece. The warmth and caring of the family members for each other shine through in the beautifully designed illustrations. The description of the parts of the sandcastle will inspire you to try out your own version the next time you go to the beach. And the phrase, “Sand castle, land castle, pat it with my hand castle!” will stick in your mind and make you smile.
Don’t Just Read It, Try It Too!
This is a book young children will love to hear, and read. Read it together for a fun family experience!
