A West Coast Summer Pictures By Carol Evans Text By Caroline Woodward
To the sea, to the sea,
who or what waits here for me?
Pairing two dozen of Carol Evans’s wonderful watercolours with a lilting rhyming story by Caroline Woodward, A West Coast Summertells of a timeless, idyllic season where “Sea salt in the air floats everywhere / and cedars smell so sweet beside the shore.” Children race bikes along sand flats, search under logs and in tide pools for tiny creatures, jig at the dock for herring, dance at a totem raising ceremony, pick berries, make memories and leave footprints in the sand.
Evans’s illustrations capture the jubilation of children exploring the seashore, inspiring young readers to take their own journey to the sea to discover who or what waits for them in the Pacific Northwest—and learn that the best memories are those shared with family and friends.
Readers of all ages will enjoy this charming collaboration, sure to become a West Coast children’s classic.
A West Coast Summer is simply magical! You’ll find yourself transported into the wonder of a perfect day by the ocean. A must-have for anyone who loves to play!
