On Poppy's beach seashells I find. My bucket's filled with every kind. I keep the ones I like the best. to hide home in my treasure chest.


Come spend a sweet summer's day exploring and enjoying the curiosities and beauties of a rural Newfoundland beach, as seen through the eyes of a little child. Filled with beautiful illustrations and lyrical verse, here is a warm and happy adventure that is both uniquely Newfoundland - as well as universal in its celebration of nature, nostalgia and joyful childhood innocence.
