"I'll always remember just Mama and me and the night that we walked by the big big sea..." A child and her mother walk in the moonlight beside the sea. It's late, and dark enough that the town across the bay is only visible as a sprinkling of lights. As they walk, the mother lets the girl lead the experience: splashing in the waves, making footprints, and finally, snuggling up on Mama's lap. This night will become a memory as luminous and enduring as the moon itself.
This is a beautiful reissue of a timeless classic. With unforgettable silver-washed images and gentle, flowing words, The Big Big Sea portrays a bond between parent and child that makes even the dark sea safe and serene.

"The mother is caught up in her daughter's serendipitous behavior — splashing, making footprints — but always allows it to be the child's experience while she provides safety, stability, and serenity. From the first exuberant run into the waves to the final warm, exhausted sleep on Mama's lap, 'I'll always remember just Mama and me and the night that we walked by the big big sea.'" — School Library Journal
