What does the boardwalk next to the ocean look like in the morning, when the fog rolls in? In the afternoon, when families and friends take a break from the beach for ice cream or fudge, arcade games or souvenirs? At night, when carousels and Ferris Wheels light the sky?
In her first picture book, “At the Boardwalk,” Kelly Ramsdell Fineman captures the sights, sounds and senses of the boardwalk with words, while illustrations paint a postcard-like view of the shore from early morning through the last hours of evening.
It’s a book that introduces children who have never seen a boardwalk or been to the ocean to a colorful and bustling world where there is much to explore and taste and touch, and where families take pleasure in the magic of their surroundings and in each other. For children who have experienced the pleasures of the boardwalk, “At the Boardwalk” will remind them of their own adventures and make them crave another trip.
