Booklist Review: "Ages 4-6. All summer, a girl and her little brother play on the dunes and beach behind their grandfather's house, but one day, a violent storm washes the sand hills away. When the children and their parents return to Grandpa's after New Year's Day, they take their Christmas tree to the beach and line it up with others to catch the sand and form new dunes. Inspired by dune conservation practices used on Texas beaches, this simple picture book highlights the pleasure these children take in the environment and in helping to preserve a place they love. Somewhat crowded but still effective, the impressionistic watercolor illustrations show the beach as ecosystem rather than playground. An efficacious use of the picture-book genre; an author's note adds extra information about coastal sand dunes. --Carolyn Phelan"
