A girl and her family vacation at the same beach each summer for a week, returning to a place that feels like home each year. From the winding roads on the way to the motel to the Monday night at the bandstand in town, everything is the same each year. The daily routine of toting towels, coolers, and umbrellas to the beach and back and playing in the waves and sand is a welcome treat, as is a new friend this year. In simple, straightforward text, Larsen captures the wonder of summer vacation, the comfort in the familiar, and the delight in finding a new friend. Stewart’s muted palate and retro-style illustrations evoke the comforting feel and wistfulness of warm summer days. (Ages 2–5)
