Sand dollar beach shell - What a beachcomber finds while shelling
This little sand dollar is found amongst the beach shells. The sand dollar image on this gift is from a painting, showing a pretty little sand dollar on the beach. Sand dollars are common along ocean beaches and especially on Florida beaches. The little pretty sand dollar is also called a sea cookie or snapper biscuit. A sand dollar is a flattened kind of sea urchin. Its relatives are the sea cucumbers and starfish. Sand dollars have a rigid skeleton, and show a kind of five-petal-like pattern on their back.
Sea sand dollars are beautiful gifts for people who spend their summers at the seashore. A sand dollar conjures up ocean breezes, sand play, and a dip in the cool ocean water. You can't help but find a tiny little sand dollar like this the next time you go beachcombing or shelling.
"She sells seashells by the seashore" is an old-fashioned tongue twister poem that reminds us of a pretty sand dollar at the beach.
