Experience Delightful Day at the Beach in New Children’s Book Released by ZD Gallup


Dog Ear Publishing releases “Nap Time at the Beach” by ZD Gallup.

A child enjoys the simple pleasures of the beach in this new illustrated book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Beaches are wonderful places to explore and provide endless hours of entertainment – and a special place to take a nap. In this charming new children’s book, author ZD Gallup uses pen and ink to describe the magical world of sand and surf. With nothing more than a pail, shovel and dump truck, a small child and their caregiver explore the beach.

 “Nap Time at the Beach” offers an up-close and personal look at the beach, where children can dig and cover up with cool moist sand as the waves say, woosh, wamp, woosh. Wading, climbing up sand dunes and watching birds scamper up and down the beach makes kids sleepy, and a beach tent provides an inviting sanctuary for a nap. Evoking a simpler time, Gallup’s gentle prose and striking illustrations add up to a beautifully told tale of a day at the beach.

Author and illustrator ZD Gallup has a bachelor’s degree in drawing and printmaking and works in mixed media and fiber in her design studio. Gallup, who is a grandmother, has spent lots of time on beaches, in spite of living in Girdwood, Alaska.
