Books about sand for preschoolers
Sea, Sand, Me! by Patricia HubbellIt is hard not to get swept up in the light, wonderful feel of this story. In this story, a young girl is going to travel to the beach. Once there, she makes a friend and they have all sorts of fun beach adventures. When the day is over they part ways, but she hopes she will see him again one day. Written in a playful verse, this book is easy to read and has great illustrations. This book would be great to read to a child who is going to the beach for the first time, or just anyone who enjoys a good story about meeting new friends. I would recommend this book for pre-k through first grade.

Exploring the ocean, tide pools and the beach is great to do in person but if you are landlocked you can still share the wonders of the ocean with your children with great picture books. If you can go explore the beach reading books about the beach for kids like these before and after are a great way of deepening their hands on experience. Otto Goes to the Beach by Todd Parr. I really enjoy this book and so have my kids. Otto is a dog who goes to the beach but no one wants to do the same things as he does, even the fish swim the other way. In the end after feeling very sad Otto finds a new friend and all his misery is forgotten. I love Todd Parr books, I love the insanely bright colors, the cute simplistic illustrations and I love the messages they send.
