I just love the Happy Yak imprint and so I was eager to get this book, especially since I really enjoyed the My Halloween book that came out last year. I was curious what words we would get in this Seaside book and what else nice surprises there would be!
In this book we follow a fun family (dog, girl, her brother/sister, parents) to the beach! We see what you have to take along on the journey (sunscreen, floaties, sunglasses for example), and then it is time to see what kind of things there are on the beach. From playing with sand and making a sandcastle to making a mermaid of one of your parents to rock pool explorations and having picnics. There is plenty to do on the beach and also in the sea! Swimming or water skiing. You won’t be bored at this beach, oh no!
I really liked that, just like the previous book, it isn’t overwhelming, not everything gets a word, just the most important things and the words aren’t too big or in the way, you can still see everything on the picture.
I also like that there are themed pages in between the pages with our family have a grand old time at the beach. Themed pages like what to pack on a picnic or what kind of creatures one may see at the beach/in the sea.
Just like in the previous book about Halloween we don’t just get words on items or things you may see. We also get emotions and actions. Like how the dog is helpful. Or how the girls baby sister/brother is paddling in the water and having a grand time.
The illustrations are just the cutest. I wish I could step into the story at times and just have a great time on the beach as well~
All in all, this was once again a really fun book and I hope that more themed books like this come out, I will be keeping an eye out for them~ I would recommend this one to all, especially now with summer coming up and beach going may be an activity people do, I think this will be fun to read during these months.
