A clever and endearing story of Noah, who is anxiously waiting to go sailing and seal watching with Nana. While waiting for his Nana, he does what most children at the beach do dig in the sand. He sculpts, imagines, and builds a speckled seal.
As a storm rolls in Noah takes cover, as his new sand friend braves the storm. What happens to the seal in the storm? Author Layn Marlow provides an imaginative mystery and a wonderful opportunity for young readers to create their point of view about Noah's seal.
