On Gull Beach

This story made me want to drop everything and head to a beach. (honestly, half of Chicago feels that way all Winter, but this book pushed that feeling to the forefront)

Even though my youngest child is now 12 years old, we still read picture books on occasion and this book rhymes which makes it, so fun to read aloud. It's published by the Cornell Lab Publishing Group and includes an index in the back with creatures you'd find on a New England Beach as well as a link to their Bird QR app so you can scan the book and hear the birds- very cool. 

Verdict- Buy

I'm a lifelong bibliophile who happens to love children's books and who should have become a librarian. Instead I horde books in case of apocalypse or the enactment of a Fahrenheit 451 type law. My five kids accept my addiction and have learned to accept books in odd places.
