Clams All Year

from 9.99

By Maryann Cocca-Leffler 

A large extended family is enjoying their summer vacation in New England, and Grandpa has been getting everyone up at five in the morning to dig for clams. They haven’t found many yet, but their luck is about to change. The morning after a big storm, they discover a bumper crop of clams on the deserted beach! The rest of the day is spent collecting and cleaning the clams, and their reward at the end of the day is sitting down to a huge dinner of clam chowder, stuffed baked clams, and spaghetti with clam sauce!

As you and your child join Grandpa and the gang in their clam-digging adventures, you will discover the importance of family and how food brings people together, all while learning a new language!
