Librarian’s Quest: A Deep Dive into SANDY FEET! WHOSE FEET? FOOTPRINTS AT THE SHORE

SANDY FEET cover-800x800



What better way to wrap up summer beach days with this delightful, insightful review of Sandy Feet! Whose Feet? Footprints at the Shore

Margie Myers-Culver of the esteemed Librarian’s Quest blog always dives deep, exploring a book's every nook and cranny, from endpapers to language cadences to illustration POVs. Of Sandy Feet, she writes:

Little readers and listeners and those reading this book penned by Susan Wood will feel the spell cast by her use of language. The rhyming words at the end of every two sentences depict a rhythm not unlike the gentle cadence of waves on a sandy shore…. All the illustrations span two pages. The perspectives vary.… Sometimes we get the sense there are dunes rolling along the beach. We may only see human feet and ankles as a bird walks past them or we may be looking down at the children as another creature hurries away. It's as if [illustrator] Steliyana Doneva presents us with a sensory experience in her artwork.
