I adored If You Find a Leaf last fall, and now Sicuro is back with her beautiful collages for summer. This delightfully perfect read encourages creativity and keen observation of the world around us. If a beach trip is in your future, be sure to grab this before you go!

— Chelsea

A stunning companion to If You Find a Leaf, this cheery picture book captures the excitement of summer and encourages children to see their collected seashells in an entirely new way. The artist incorporates real shells into her exquisite illustrations.

A warm summer breeze and the gentle waves of the ocean wash ashore many different types of shells. In this story a girl collects shells and thinks of all the magnificent things they can be turned into with a little creativity. She imagines one shell as a swimming cap for diving into the crashing waves, another as a magical kaleidoscope, one as a rocket ship to take her way up high and another as a submarine for exploring the wonders of the world below. The girl draws inspiration from the unique beauty of each and every shell.

In this joyous celebration of a day at the beach, artist Aimee Sicuro uses real shells she’s hand selected to make her oh-so-charming illustrations. Any young reader who turns the pages of this beautiful book will be inspired to use their own imagination as they comb the beach for shells this summer.
Aimee Sicuro knew at an early age she wanted to make things, and spent many years trying to figure out how. She is the creator of If you Find a Leaf, and Dancing Through Fields of Color by Elizabeth Brown. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Parent Magazine and other publications. She now lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and two children. This is her second book as both an author-illustrator.
