Bedtime Story Excerpt:

Wanda was excited to go to the beach! It was her first day of vacation and she loved the water. As her parents settled into the chaise lounges at the seaside, Wanda headed towards the water’s edge. The water glistened as the rays of the sun flickered across its surface. It sure was beautiful. As she stood on the shore, the ocean’s waves lapped at her feet. Moving in and out, pulling some sand with each roll in, and pushing crushed shells out with every crash. She loved the feel of the sand melting away under her feet. It tickled!
