This beautiful picturebook depicts a family's fun-filled day at a beach. Racing past dunes, building sand castles, and singing songs by a bonfire at night, the family revels in the peaceful beauty of an ocean beach. Lennie Gallant's lyrical description of a summer day is matched perfectly with Patsy MacKinnon's sun-soaked illustrations. A Day with You in Paradise is based on Lennie's song of the same name from the Juno-nominated album When We Get There.
