1968 to 1976: A Vanished Time

This simple, lyrical picture book by Natalie Publow Ziarnik ’88 and illustrated by Madeline Valentine is as warm, reassuring, and filled with joy as a vacation at the beach. Readers will join a little girl and her siblings as they wind down from a perfect day — hanging up towels, eating dinner, and getting ready for bed — each activity sparking a memory of their day — playing catch with the dog, chasing waves, and looking at sailboats along the shore. And when the lights of the family beach house go off, young listeners will be lulled to sleep themselves. For ages 3–8. Published by Schwartz & Wade in 2018.
