Sandcastle by Einat Tsarfati
Right off, I love the subtle texture on the book cover, it invites the sensation of sand from the start. The illustrations really make this book. There are a great variety of breach-goers depicted and just so many tiny details, readers can could pour over the pages for hours and get lost in day dreams. The over lying messages of this book are that through dreams, amazing things can be created and everything changes and that’s OK because we can just pick up and start all over. That is the true beauty of a sandcastle and a perfect tie in to life and its every changing ways and our need to let go of trying to keep things permanent.
