BEACH DAY! by Anahid Hamparian

BEACH DAY!

by , illustrated by

KIRKUS REVIEW

A cheerful little red-haired girl greets beach, umbrella, seagull and so on over the course of one clearly fabulous day at the beach. Each spread presents the girl against the beach background with the one line of dialogue—“Hello, waves [lifeguard, towel, etc.]”—assisting listeners in identifying the focal object of each painting. Sorra provides plenty of opportunities for adults to amplify and expand on the text (“What kind of sandwich is she getting out of the cooler?”), making this a cozily interactive experience, but refrains from crowding her compositions—a happy balance babies and their grown-ups will respond to. (12-24 mos.)
