What a great book! My friend Kelly Ramsdell Fineman‘s new book, At the Boardwalk, is out! And it’s wonderful. The rhyme and meter are perfect, and the storyline is terrific. I was going to buy this book when I saw it on Barnes & Noble’s picture book wall Sunday (whee!), but there was a long line and one cashier. I will be buying it soon, though!
This book is set at a boardwalk and goes through a full day of adventure and excitement (and exhaustion). Even if you’ve got no boardwalk near you (like me, here in Minnesota), what a fun book to read with kids and get ready for or remember your last family adventure at a theme park, beach,?or carnival…The colorful art and sensory details recall all of those kinds of things.
I’m so happy for Kelly. Yay!
(I’m trying to keep a new commitment. When I love a book enough to give it 4 or 5 stars on Goodreads, I’m going to copy my notes on it here and on Amazon. I don’t do thorough or scholarly reviews, but I do want to at least publicly share books I love!)
