Open this book and you'll be walking along the ocean shore, looking for all kinds of special things. Some will be small enough to fit in your hand--like shells and sea glass. Others--like the sun and the sky and the waves--will be too big to carry home. But no matter what your journey holds, you'll soon learn that looking for the ocean's treasures can be as important as finding them.
Debra Frasier, author-illustrator of the bestselling On the Day You Were Born, invites you along on this beach journey of discovery.

The journey of walking on the beach can be captivating. She does a great job emphasizing the 5 senses.
This book personifies the ocean which makes this book a good example of a fantasy. There are also some realistic fiction aspects to this book. Children could relate to finding things on the beach and how those experiences made them feel. The book also contains good illustrations that combined a lot of different media.
