From Barnes & NobleHere's the perfect children's book to take to the beach, whether you're going there for real or just in your mind. Children will love the antics of Sally, a fun-loving and curious Labrador retriever, as she takes her own trip in Sally Goes to the Beach. This adventurous tale reveals the delights and dilemmas Sally encounters on her beach vacation, where most of the other travelers are dogs who look remarkably like Sally. The entire trip is experienced from a dog's point of view as Sally shares what she sees, tastes, hears, and smells in a way that dog lovers can appreciate -- "The air smells great, just like cat food!"
Not only will children learn to make use of all their senses and more fully appreciate the world around them, they will likely laugh at some of the silly predicaments Sally finds herself in, from the crab clinging to her nose to the starfish riding on her face. Then there's Sally's way of doing the dishes after dinner -- by simply licking the plates. Sally's journey is depicted in brightly colored woodcut prints done by the author, a talent for which he is internationally renown. Each illustration requires carving several blocks for each shape and color, and the end result is as unique as it is eye-catching. But most of all, it's Sally's wonderful sense of fun, her unbridled curiosity, and her contagious love of life that make this book a standout.
