This month, it’s time to take a trip to the beach! Come along as we splash in the waves, hunt for beach treasures and feel the sand between our toes. Good Night, Good Beach celebrates the rhythm of summer holidays, full of slow days getting back to nature and spending time with loved ones.
Even if your holidays will be spent at home, the evocative watercolour illustrations in Good Night, Good Beach will transport you immediately to summers past and, hopefully, summers future.
Extra things to think about and do:
- One of the children in this story has a collection of beach treasures under their pillow. What do you like to collect?
- “Waves hush-hushing on the shore.” What other sounds might you hear at the beach?
- Can you remember your favourite place to go on holiday? What can you remember seeing, smelling, hearing, eating?
- Can you spot: a lemon, a grey bird, biscuits on a plate – and the empty plate after they’ve all been eaten –, a tree swing, a colourful ball, and someone staying up to read by the moonlight?
