Life’s a sun-dappled, low-tide beach in this whimsical guide to building castles (and pyramids and marine animals) in the sand. Featuring such practical tips as the ”flat-mountain” construction method and the ever-important water-to-sand ratio, Sandcastles‘s author Patti Mitchell provides step-by-step instructions on how to fashion everything from an octopus (”[have] one of the tentacles grabbing something like a fish or maybe your baby brother”) to a wild-haired mermaid rising from the sea. Frankie Frankeny’s gorgeous photos are reason enough to flip through this book — whether or not you have any intention of actually picking up a shovel and pail. B+
