Babl Children's Books in German and English
"Sand dollar, sand dollar, ocean away, make the cold blue waves stay away for today." When the waves destroy Peter and Urchin's sand castle, ruining their perfect beach day, Peter begins to throw rocks at the sea. He finds what appears to be a magical sand dollar and makes a wish, but is it the right one? When Peter sees some of the consequences of his wish on the environment, he calls upon the sand dollar again, helping the beach to come alive once more
As your children join Peter and Urchin on the beach, they will learn how the choices we make affect more than we think. Bask in the warmth of a summer's day with your children while you all learn a new language Reviews
There's not a distancing word about tides or a false or unnecessary one about Peter's view of things-just an artist-observer's view of the scene, with Peter at the center. - Kirkus
...rollicking story... The illustrations are dazzling silk-screen pictures in blue and gold with the characters etched in white. - Publisher's Weekly
Simply and effectively designed, the illustrations show wide expanses of yellow sand and blue sky, frothy waves, and the teeming life under the surface of the sea. - The Horn Book
