A simple set of phrases describes the activities during a beach outing. The young boy plays in the soft sand, floats in a boat and gets his hands wet. The sun is warm. But that does not stop him from enjoying a sticky bun. Finally, he gets a chance for a dip in the water and when he comes out a warm, dry beach towel helps keep the shivers under control. No mater whatbe it scrapes, tickly bugs, or cool breezesthis toddler remains warm and cozy during his wonderful day at the beach. The sun shines brightly from the illustration, but there is plenty of cool blue sea to give balance along with the little boy's great big smile all during the day. 2005, Frances Lincoln, Ages 1 to 3.
