MORNING BEACH by Leslie Baker


Email this review


Visiting Grandma, the young narrator and her mom pack a breakfast picnic, then bike along a familiar route to the beach ""as the sun begins to burn away the morning chill."" They pass pastures of cows and horses, a daisy-studded meadow, and a pond with early swimmers, and are thwarted only briefly by a new gate: Mom remembers another path. Baker, a gifted watercolorist, sets this pleasant idyll on Martha's Vineyard, deftly capturing the pair's pleasure in their outing as well as the lovely setting. A slight story, but attractively produced.
