Journey of the Sea Glass
What happens to sea glass between the time it falls into the sea and it washes up on the beach? This charming and inventive book explores a possible course of events, tracing a Coca-Cola bottle that is dropped overboard from a ship near the turn of the 20th century, only to have a fragment of it discovered on a beach by a young girl decades later. Over time, the bottle has been influenced by waves, currents, the sea floor, and sea creatures, all pictured in lush full-color illustrations. With no words, the story is related completely through the images, allowing children and adults alike to fully immerse themselves in the artwork.
