Journey into the heart of a quintessential summer holiday with this enchanting picture book. Acclaimed author Joy Cowley captures the essence of family time by the sea in a lyrical bedtime story that will resonate with readers of all ages.

Through evocative language and gentle rhythms, Cowley paints a vivid picture of day's end at a seaside retreat:

  • Beach treasures nestled under pillows
  • The lingering scent of salt in the air
  • Waves whispering a lullaby as night falls

The book's soothing refrain - "good day, good sea, good sand, good night" - mirrors the cadence of lapping waves, gently guiding young readers towards sleep.

Hilary Jean Tapper's warm watercolour and ink illustrations bring Cowley's words to life, depicting a diverse cast of characters that reflects the rich tapestry of modern families. Children and adults of various ages and backgrounds share in the simple joys of a seaside holiday, creating a story that's both timeless and inclusive.

This beautifully crafted picture book serves as more than just a bedtime story - it's a celebration of cherished family moments and the magic of summers by the sea. "At the Bach" is sure to become a treasured addition to any home library, evoking fond memories for adults and creating new ones for children.
