Little Critter and his grandmother decide to spend a day at the beach! Little Critter is a good helper, even at the beach. When his grandmother's hot dog falls in the sand, he washes it off in the ocean. He promises to blow up the inflatable sea horse but needs a little help in the end. The joys and mishaps of a special summer day with Grandma are all brightened by Little Critter's sunny disposition!

Mercer Mayer's Little Critter stories, which address all the major issues of growing up, are perennial favorites of parents and children.

New features only available in this interactive omBook for your Android device include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene. Â

The story is well written for young children. My son frequently requests this one. The narration and music are very good and the children enjoy getting to look for the insects in each scene. At the end of the story it shows how many they have found. Very cute!

My granddaughter sat with me and listened to the "read me" feature of this book over and over. She was better at lightly swiping to turn the pages than I am and she was just 3 years old! After just a couple of times she was reading the words ahead of the e-reader lady. My son has been reading picture books to her since she was old enough to sit up in his lap.. about 6 months old or so. I know when I go to see them for Christmas she is going to want to do some more reading! I wish Nook would come out with a child's version of the nook. I know V-Tech has one but I am such a Nook fan I would love it to be a Nook for Kids. I sure don't want to just hand her my Nook Color. I need to look for a couple more books along the line of this one for when I go see her for Christmas. I cherish the time we spend sitting and "reading" together so much.

Little Critter books are the best! Not only do they have a fun story that most children can relate to, the cilors are bright, and each page has a special critter or two to find, look for the spider and grasshopper in this book. Fantastic fun!

Very disappointed. Apparently the app books don't work with an iPad but do work with nook color and nook tablet.
