From a dynamic author and illustrator team, a picture book about connecting to nature and with each other on a path across the city, from a park to the beach

Follow along as families from all over the city set out and connect on a trail that begins inland and winds its way through diverse neighborhoods, city playgrounds and parks, up and down open-space hills, past piñata parties and food trucks, downtown buildings, movie-studio rainbows, and public art murals—all the way to the beach at dusk, where they meet around a bonfire, next to a sparkling Ferris wheel on a pier.

Inspired by a real city trail called Park to Playa in Los Angeles, From Park to Playa includes back matter not only about the real path, but about finding your path where you live. Nature is just outside the door and free and accessible to all, even if you live in the middle of a major city.
Nell Cross Beckerman writes books for children celebrating nature and wonder, including Down Under the Pier, published by Cameron Kids; When the Sky Glows; Caves; and Volcanoes. She is a proud resident of Culver City, where she can walk to the Park to Playa path.
