This beautiful book has the most enchanting illustrations! My girls love looking at them over and over!
The story itself felt a little cheesy, and a bit confusing. There was some drama with the girl missing her parents and it felt a bit like a chapter taken out of a larger story where we actually knew where the parents were and why the girl was crying to be away from them for a couple days.
Some of the descriptions of what different elements of the sand dollar were supposed to represent were a bit befuddling as well, but they made me and my daughter want to look up more information about sand dollars together, which we enjoyed doing.
As a story to read once and then just look at the gorgeous pictures over and over, this book was a hit. 🙂
I love giving books in Easter baskets, and this one is a lovely choice.
