School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3 --A great choice for beach-chair travelers. The wind has taken little Mary's ball, causing her to chase it through double-page spreads of color identification, numbers, shapes, opposites, and more, oblivious to the wild assortment of oddly dressed people basking in the sun. This backdrop of leisure activity is the essence of the book, as young beachcombers are encouraged to sift through the chaos to find objects from A-Z, count fish or sunglasses, or identify animals on an ark. Surprises abound as new objects are spotted--a little elf in green sitting under a mushroom umbrella, a shark and an alligator lurking in shallow water, a boy blowing up an elephant balloon larger than himself. Sis' quirky illustrations have the grainy, gritty texture of sand, causing the book itself to appear as though it had been at the beach--the perfect place to take it for an afternoon of fun. --Trev Jones, School Library Journal
