Join Clementine and all her friends for a rollicking adventure along the coastline! Help build sandcastles and play in the surf, or admire starfish and seagulls while also learning about how to care for the oceans and the environment. After a wonderful day spent in the sand and waves, enjoy a picnic under the stars and fall asleep dreaming about all the fun you had. Let Clementine be your guide on her greatest adventure so far-to the beach!
What a beautiful, diverse world we inherited, a planet simply bursting with innumerable wonders to enchant and delight us. At the core, Beachcombers is a children's book about gratitude and the need to both contribute in practical ways to an environment we should protect and to imagine the fullness of our origins, so we can shape an equally bountiful future. The story names birds, fish, fauna and other animals as a way to weave a tapestry of specific creatures whose ecosystems need care, and the sounds and rhythms of their pronunciations when spoken aloud will entertain and mesmerize young readers. The children, and their dog, lead us and teach us: we should enjoy the mysterious and fanciful world all around us, but we should also act as caretakers for our environment. After we work and play, we are inspired to indulge our imaginations and learn to dream. After a full day, we rest in our dreams of the future.
"As seen through the eyes of adolescent children, Beachcombers is an enchanting story of responsibility and captures the impact humans have on our environment. Clementine and the young people teach us that we have the ability to change the world for the better--one piece of plastic, and one friendship, at a time." --Javier Rivera, GearUp advisor and educator
