At the Beach by Anne & Harlow Rockwell (Children's Book Review)



Release Date - June 2014 (Reissue)

Book Review by Bob Walch

Granted this may not be a book you want to read with your child in the heart of winter, but, on the other hand, it is also nice to remind the youngster that when the snow and ice melt and the temperature goes back up there are some good times ahead.

Reissued by Aladdin, this picture book first appeared in 1987. It chronicles a child’s day at the beach and all the cool things she encounters. The illustrations are simple but effective plus the text is simple enough to manage for beginning readers.

Frankly, there are perhaps glitzier picture books about a day at the beach but this classic will work well with younger children and there is something refreshing about its simplicity.
