Are you and the kids hopping in the car and heading to the beach this weekend? Then be sure to stop by your local bookstore and pick up a copy of “Beach Fun: Poems of Surf and Sand,” John Micklos Jr.’s latest children’s book. The Newark-based author captures everything we all love about the beach, from sandcastles to boardwalk fries.
Although designed for children ages 4–12, the photographs from award-winning photographer Lisa Joy Goodman will make any beach-lover smile.
“I wanted to write a poetry book that offered a child’s-eye view of the magic of a beach visit—capturing the sights, sounds and other sensations,” Micklos says of his work. “This would be a great book for families to share before, during or after a visit to the beach.”
John Micklos Jr. is the author of 25 children’s books, including poetry books, picture books, biographies, and history and social studies titles.
John Micklos Jr. and Lisa Joy Goodman will be signing copies of the book at Browseabout Books in Rehoboth Beach on Thursday, June 16, from 6–8 p.m. For more information, visit www.browseaboutbooks.com.
