Starting with a blank canvas, the illustrator of this eBook paints the picture in a series, moving from background to middle ground to foreground. This process encourages the child to interpret each new addition to the scene. Wordless picture books are a first step to reading. The stories are a sequence of pictures that children follow and tell what happens in their own words. This activity helps build vocabulary, comprehension skills, and imagination. Older children and adults can follow along and duplicate the progression to paint their own "Sand & Surf" painting using acrylics or any computer graphics program.
