Gear up for summer with this charming book about a day at the boardwalk. Author Kelly Ramsdell Fineman shares a summer day trip to the boardwalk with her lyrical rhymes. A family’s day of relaxing fun is highlighted by seeing a baby in a stroller being pushed by his mother, who is jogging in the early morning fog; blowing bubbles that fly into the air; getting treats of all kinds day or night, and so much more. Then it’s time to watch the sunset before sleepy heads go home.
At the Boardwalk is illustrated by Monica Armino. Her choice of subtle, warm colors and soft lines are perfect for this book. They are calming, yet capture all the fun of a day together. The nice details such as rosy faces, a handprinted sign at the ice cream shop, and the swirls in the puddles when kids splash as it rains, are not lost on older readers.
This is a special book that shows what life for families is all about–spending time together and creating life-long memories
