Seashell, Sing a Song to Me: Traditional Songs and Rhymes for Young Seafarers Imagine a day at the beach. Picnic baskets have been packed to overflowing with sandwiches, drinks and snacks. Bags are brimming with pails and shovels, small boats and rubber ducks, and other beach toys. Blankets, towels, an umbrella, sunscreen, perhaps some books and magazines, and a chair or two for the grown-ups, fill the trunk. The grown-ups are looking forward to a lazy day at the beach, but for the children it is anything but a rest. There are sand castles to build, gulls to chase, shells to collect, stones to skip. There are waves to conquer and sand dunes to explore. Childrens imaginations are as vast as the coastal vista and run as wild as the surf crashing on the shore. Seashell, Sing a Song to Me recreates a day at the beach in song and rhyme. Come with singer Theo Heras and spend a day by the water whether, for you, it is at the seashore, on a river or by a lake. Celebrate and enjoy that magical place where anything can happen! . . . Listen, the sea is calling. . .
