KIRKUS REVIEW

Responding to her son's questions, a mother describes the sea he has never seen--what it's like to run in the surf in the early morning mist, marvel at the "smooth, pearly pink" of a shell, observe the sea birds, or feel the sun's warmth and the waves' chill. Minor (Sierra, Heartland, etc.) catches the spirit of the evocative, poetic text in gentle, precise watercolor and gouache paintings, delicately framed to balance the elegant in- line type style. A graceful, handsomely produced tribute to a favorite childhood experience. (Picture book. 3-8)
