Every summer, my husband and I pack up our two kids and head to the beach for a low-tech, high-fun few days in the sand. This annual vacation is something my children look forward to for months. As the excitement builds, I capitalize on it by finding a few great books about the beach to read before and after our trip. Here are 10 wonderful picture books that pair perfectly with a trip to the beach.
