In the story One Morning in Maine Sal goes clam digging with her father. As she is a six year old girl with a loose tooth, she has many questions about clams and whether or not they have teeth. This story was a family favorite, but I never imagined we would have the opportunity to dig for clams as Sal had done.
Clams can be found just below the surface of the sand, in the summer months when the tide is out.
