You can find so much more than just sand on the beach.

You can find people, animals, interesting and unusual objects, and occasionally, deep thoughts!

In this collection of free verse poems, Denise Bossarte takes you on an adventure to explore the things you can find on the beach.

Each poem's imagery is reflected in a paired watercolor illustration by award winning artist Nancy Standlee.


  • "Life goes round and round on the beach. Its serenity is sublime and contemplative, 'coming last, I see them all.' Bossarte's inspirational words, along with the colorful illustrations by Texas artist, Nancy Standlee, provide the reader (old and young) with a relaxing and insightful tour of the beach. Beautiful poetry and illustrations. Well done." - Readers' Favorite
  • "People, animals, things and thoughts - Bossarte has found all these and more and turned them into poetry. And Standlee's beautiful watercolors make the images even more vivid. A perfect book for gift-giving." - Mensa Bulletin
