Delaware Poet & Photographer Collaborate on Children’s Book

Delaware Poet, Photographer Produce New Children’s Book, Beach Fun: Poems of Surf and Sand

Beach lovers everywhere will enjoy Beach Fun: Poems of Surf and Sand, a new children’s picture book that pools the efforts of Newark author John Micklos, Jr. and Wilmington photographer Lisa Joy Goodman. From sand castles to sea gulls, from swimming to kite flying, the rhythmic, light-hearted poems capture the fun of a visit to the beach. Gorgeous photographs by Lisa Goodman also evoke the magic of the beach and provide a perfect complement to the text. The book, published in April 2016 by First State Press, is designed for children ages 4-12 but will appeal to beach lovers of all ages.

Lisa Goodman’s award-winning photographs have appeared in several books and in magazines and websites across the United States and beyond.
