No one hopes for rain, wind or chilly temps on a beach vacation, but the bright smiles and energetic antics of the kids in this adorable board book as they scamper through all kinds of weather at the beach might change your mind. Loaded with rich, colorful details, the personalities of each child shine through as you follow them through their week at the beach. As a parent who has chased little kids around on beaches in Florida, Cape Cod and the Lake Michigan dunes, I found familiar images on each and every page. Buy it to prepare kids for a trip to the shore or as a souvenir of a past vacation. I guarantee it will be read again and again.
