What happens to sea glass between the time it falls into the sea and it washes up on the beach? This charming and inventive book explores a possible course of events, tracing a Coca-Cola bottle that is dropped overboard from a ship near the turn of the 20th century, only to have a fragment of it discovered on a beach by a young girl decades later. Over time, the bottle has been influenced by waves, currents, the sea floor, and sea creatures, all pictured in lush full-color illustrations. With no words, the story is related completely through the images, allowing children and adults alike to fully immerse themselves in the artwork. Sea glass books continue to be enormously popular, especially with young beachcombers. Explains to children the natural processes involved in creating a piece of sea glass. Nicole Fazio's detailed illustrations of underwater sea life are instructive and compelling. Full-color spreads with no words will inspire a child's imagination.
When I first opened this book ready to read it to my kids I was stumped. There was pictures with no words! As much as I found this odd, I found it even more interesting. See, all books have words, but this particular book makes you and or your kids use your imagination and make up a new story every time the book is opened! I had my two oldest children, especially Lauren because she can't read yet, make their own story out of the book. Oh the things they came up with! They loved it.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone! What a great idea. Be sure to keep an eye out for when they come out in stores!
