To The Sea - Christian Children's Board Book #Review and #Giveaway! (U.S.) CLOSED

To The Sea is a great children's board book written by Callie Grant and illustrated by Jeremy Tugeau. "To The Sea" is a board book that helps little ones feel like they are having their very own ocean-side experience. As children imagine the sights, sounds, feelings, and tastes evoked in the story, they can take part in one boy’s adventurous day there, with its surprises and rewards. "To The Sea" is a Praise book, which wonders at the miracles found in everyday life and praises the God who made them.

Here's a print out for parents to use to build on their discussion with their children about God!

My Review:
To The Sea reminded me of my childhood and growing up in southern California. We spent most summer weekends at the beach having bonfires and inviting anyone who wanted to join us. We always had so much fun showing up around 2 or 3pm, and staying until 9 or 10pm. Sure we might have gotten a little sunburned or tanned, but we always had so much fun!

My children and I live near Nashville, TN. They only get to see the ocean now when we travel to southern California to see my parents, their grandparents. This book will help remind them of the ocean and just how the sand does feel between there toes. It will also help to remind them that God made everything, and God made our glorious, beautiful Beaches, Ocean, Sand and Seashells.

To The Sea is now available for purchase at your local book retailers and on amazon.
