Review: Actors Carlos and Alexa PenaVega write a beautiful adventure using their very own family as the characters in the story. It’s Alexa’s birthday and their sons Ocean and Kingston want to find her a Sunrise Shell from the beach, sending them both on an amazing adventure.

This was the cutest picture book, it took you on a wonderful adventure around Hawaii in search of one magical shell. The boys explore so many places throughout the story and find so many other shells and creatures and even though the shell they wanted was hard to find they kept searching.

I loved that we got so many extra facts just casually placed within the pages telling us the Hawaiian pronunciation for certain words spoken, or facts about the creatures we see along the way. They were really interesting to learn and I loved that they were included.

The illustrations were adorable so beautifully done, it captured the story so perfectly on each page and I adored looking at them on each page seeing what creatures were there and they were amazing.

I really highly recommend this picture book, it is so creative and sweet and is a visually beautiful book with an amazing adventure and two really cute siblings. It has great simple facts, you’ll be captivated right away and instantly love this book as I did.
