Just a quick post in the midst of my vacation hangover to sing the praises of a picture book I found at Buxton Village Books during our stay in Cape Hatteras last week. After years of bringing home cheesy OBX t-shirts and store-bought sea shells, I finally found a vacation memento that records exactly what our week at the beach was like--at least for our youngest child.

In Wave, Suzy Lee's gorgeous, soothing illustrations of a little girl (I imagine her as a 2 and a half year old, like my own daughter) meeting the ocean capture the relationship between child and sea so perfectly it puts a lump in my throat.

A lovely video at Chronicle Books animates every page of Wave, so you can witness its charm for yourself, but I can promise that the sweetness and wonder of Lee's illustrations can only truly be savored with the book in your lap.
