A sweet story in rhyme about enjoying a day at the sea. For little starfish and other water rats ages 4 years and up.
The sun is shining, cheerful, and bright. It tickles me awake with its happy light. Do you know where we’re going today? To the sea! Little doggy, will you come with me?
About the authors
Ellen DeLange has been fascinated by picture books ever since she was a child growing up in the Netherlands. In the attic of her home, she assembled a small library and shared her collection with friends and family. As an adult, she started traveling and expanded her library with picture books from all over the world. Ellen also enjoyed inventing her own stories and was encouraged by her daughter to write her first picture book, A Story with a Tale. Ellen has a doctorate in medical sciences and currently lives in Canada where she loves to walk in the woods with her Jack Russell terriers, drink lots of tea after a busy day, and sail on the ocean to clear her mind.
