Sandy Feet! Whose Feet?: Footprints at the Shore

We rated this book:


If you can’t get out for a day at the beach, Sandy Feet, Whose Feet? is a great substitute. This picture book, written in rhyme, follows a family’s day at the beach while showcasing different animals and their tracks.

The illustrations are bright and cheery, done in–I’m guessing–either acrylic or gouache. The ocean and beach take up different parts of the page on each spread, creating a sense of movement and change in focus.

I also appreciate that in the time of #WeNeedDiverseBooks, especially childrens’ books, this story features a family of color as the main characters. Just as we need stories of children and families with specific cultural experiences, we also need stories with universal experiences that don’t just feature characters.

I really enjoyed this story, and my three-year-old did as well.
