Hush Little Beachcomber

FOR THE WEEKEND, share this fun summer time title with your child! 

Hush, Little Beachcomber is appropriate for children of all ages.

Hush, Little Beachcomber tells of all the fun to be had in the sun and at the beach. Following the rhythm of “Hush Little Baby” you’ll be taken on a day of adventures on the sand, in the surf, and with the seagulls. The beautiful story written by Dianne Moritz is perfectly accompanied by the warm and summer illustrations of Holly McGee.

Practice this Comprehension Strategy-Making Predictions:
Before reading Hush, Little Beachcomber comb through the pages with your child. Ask them questions about what they are seeing in the pictures. Have them use the pictures to make predictions about the text. Where do they think the story takes place? What types of activities are they seeing? Then as you read see if their predictions were correct. By furthering their engagement with the book, you’ll be deepening their connections to the story. 

Do this with your child:
Hush, Little Beachcomber is written to mirror the rhythm of “Hush Little Baby.” As you read, try to follow that rhythm and if you would like to, sing the story to your child. You can watch and listen to the original “Hush Little Baby” by clicking here.
