A Lulu Looks Forward To…Book Review


Title: Grains of Sand

Written & Illustrated by: Sibylle Delacroix

Published By: Owlkids Books Inc.

Publishing Date: April 15, 2018


Grains of Sand is an adorable story about a brother and sister who bring home both sun and sand from their beach vacation!

And what can you do with a shoe full of sand?

Grow a field of beach umbrellas…

A crop of Lemonflavored Ice Cream!

With a child’s imagination the possibilities are endless…

But with sand, water, and fun the Sandman soon comes!!!

Goodnight ocean, see you next year!


With spring break around the corner and summer vacations coming up this is the perfect book for little ones who may be going on beach adventures! I love the illustrations in this book, though Lulu was concerned about the lack of color in the pictures, I think the pencil sketches with the splashes of blue and yellow make the book pop!


This book has a childlike innocence that just makes you feel good inside and is overall a magical and super sweet story! I cannot wait to get Grains of Sand in my hands!!!
