The Sun, the Wind, and the Rain by Lisa Westberg Peters

With a plastic bucket and shovel, Elizabeth uses beach sand to build a mountain. Off in the distance, yet large enough to see, is a magnificent mountain range forged of rock and sediment. As breezes and the sea spill the granules from Elizabeth’s mountain, so too does the wind and rain shear pebbles and dirt from the majestic peak that rises above the land.

This is the story of two mountains and how nature and time changes them.
