At the seashore, or chepchop unai, a young boy named Juan learns how to build sand
sculptures from his uncle. Although he is met with obstacles along the way, Juan keeps
trying until he becomes a talented sand sculptor. Chepchop Unai highlights the beauty
and importance of intergenerational sharing in the CHamoru culture. The book features
captivating illustrations of Juan and his family at the beach and the unique island-inspired
sand sculptures he creates there. Chepchop Unai is written mainly in English, and
utilizes CHamoru words and phrases throughout the story to help teach the language.
