Book Review: Sandcastles Made Simple

by Lucinda "sandy feet" Wierenga

From the Author's Website:  Are YOU Ready to Build a Better Sandcastle? 

Well let me show you how!  See the really cool castle in the cover shot at left? In this book I show you every single trick - plus quite a few more - that my partners and I used in creating it.

My Thoughts:  First of all, the author is a professional sand castle builder!  Wha  ?!?!?!  I don't recall my high school counselor EVER mentioning that as a career option!  This delightful little book was left for us at a condo we rented on Dauphin Island.  I read it while sitting on our balcony listening to waves and watching pelicans.  It's absolutely perfect for a week on the beach!  Excuse me while I go change careers!  ;-)

What have you been reading?

  1. Last year we went to San Diego & spent a day on Coronado Island. There were professional sand castle builders on the beach that was amazing! People would take photographs then give money. I don't know if the famouse hotel there hired them or not.

  2. We have watched a few sand castle builders and they are amazing! I have heard of so many careers since I've been an adult that I never heard of when I was in high school.
