ABOUT THE BOOK

“A BEAUTIFUL book! My students loved looking at it over and over there is SO MUCH to see! I suggest buying more than 1 copy so children don't have to wait to enjoy it.”

– D. Sherman, Amazon Review

Out of the Ocean illustration

Walking this beach,
I’ve found pelican feathers,
a wooden shoe, floating glass
balls, skate egg pouches,
plastic boats, abandoned rafts,
two unbroken sea urchin shells,
messages curled inside bottles,
carved wooden floats...

Out of the Ocean is Debra’s tribute to growing up in the small seaside town of Vero Beach, Florida, where she and her family walked the edge of the Atlantic Ocean looking for treasures.

A comprehensive glossary describes each of the sea discoveries found in this book.

Out of the Ocean by Debra Frasier

I know you can ask
the ocean for shells,
because every time we go
to the beach looking,
there they are,
tumbling end over end,
arriving empty,
most times worn
by the sand and waves.
