My family loves this book. It has been packed to travel with us to the beach every trip since we bought it about 6 months ago. We have been creating sand castles for many years using those cheap plastic forms. As the kids grew up, our sand castles got bigger and bigger, but the complexity and artistry did not. We just didn't know the techniques that are found in this book. This book is beautifully illustrated with clear, well designed photographs. The author describes the details of how to create these types of sculptures from the very beginning, so that someone with little or no experience working with sand can understand the techniques. As with many artistic endeavors, the skill of the artist comes into play, but with the step by step instructions, almost anyone should have success at upping the quality and artistry of their sand castle creations. Our creations are still somewhat simple compared to the wonderful creations that are possible by studying the book, but so far, during the last three trips to the beach, we have managed to add a little something new from the book to our castle design each time. And the kids love the compliments!

Lots of detailed instructions for copying theirs or creating your own sand castles. Very detailed lists and photos of many suggested tools. (Probably unnecessary for something that will be washed away in the next tide or stomped on by kids.) Most ideas would require much time and patience to complete. A little too didactic - kind of takes the fun and spontaneity out of a day at the beach. Though the format may seem it is for kids, it is more like a manual for an older child or adult who wants to execute a specific idea or enter a sand castle building contest. One idea for a sand turtle for youngsters seemed fun.

My beach house renters loved this and put it to great use. The book was brand new in June and quite worn by August. Hoping to get one more summer out of it and then will buy again!

This is a great beach vacation read. The guidance is spot-on and our basic sandcastle-building skills were immediately improved! We didn’t try out any of the “advanced” techniques as we were just out to have fun with our kids, but I did enjoy reading about it. I liked that the author gave ranges of suggestions for tools, from the very basic and easy-to-do (a broken plastic fork) up to professional level tools. This book makes attractive sandcastles achievable at any skill level, age, or attention span. Recommend!

We gave this as a gift who then used the instructions for the New England snow!

Got this before a beach vacation and my son was super excited to read in the days leading up to trip. Has clear explanations and good ideas. Was a super fun way to engage a tween boy prior to a family vacation.

Bought this for a trip to the beach with grandchildren. This was very useful and we learned so much from it. I would recommend this to anyone looking to improve their beach experience with easy sandcastle building. Great photos and simple instructions. I like that it gave suggested tools so we could gather things for our kit before going to the beach.
