Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS A young preschooler accompanies her mother to the beach and in a first-person narrative describes familiar beach activities such as putting on sunscreen and chasing sandpipers. The clear and simple watercolor illustrations have a traditional Rockwell look to them with softly rounded shapes rendered in seaside tones. The concepts presented are appropriate as an introduction for this age, but the uninspired text, composed of a series of statements (``I wear my bathing suit,'' ``I wade in the water''), convey a staccato feeling to the experience. It raises one questiondoes simple have to be simplistic? A better choice is Helen Oxenbury's Beach Day (Dial, 1982). Caroline Ward, Nassau Library System, Uniondale, N.Y.

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent for young children and babies who have been or are going to the beach. It tells a sweet tale about a little girl's day at the beach with her mother. The child has experiences that are fairly universal to beach visits: she explores, collects shells, builds in the sand, swims, and eats lunch. The illustrations are simple but cute, and the text is descriptive and short enough for very young readers (including infants). Our toddler adores this book.

Format: Hardcover
‘At the Beach’, a book for children written more than 20 years ago by Anne Rockwell with illustrations by Harlow and Lizzy Rockwell is a timeless classic for the smallest children that manages to intrigue children with simple illustrations and story easy to follow.

In addition to original version that was released back in 90s, this new release contains a bit different illustrations on jacket together with some changes on inside artwork. Therefore if in the meantime you somewhere misplaced the original given that your kids may already have their children this new and updated version is worth obtaining.

Made for children aged 2 to 4 maximum, the book describes one day at the beach, all the entertaining activities young girl and her mother are doing, all the games they two are playing.

Using charming simple pictures with not too much details, but still enough catchy for young reader to be fully interested, the authors made an excellent children book which has withstood the test of time and today is read with equal ease and pleasure as well as 20 years ago.

Therefore high recommendations for the Rockwells ‘At the Beach’ – a work for children that proves there is no need to fill the book with too much of everything in order to produce classic.

My first graders write a narrative about their trip to the beach and this story goes along perfectly with our theme. The cute, vibrant illustrations are detailed and the simple text communicates the joys and pleasures of a trip to the beach. I highly recommend this for ages 2-7.

This simply worded story of a day at the beach is so useful in delivering themed vocabulary to language disabled students. As a speech/language therapist, I am always looking for ways to help students expand their skills through literature and all of Anne Rockwell's books are great resources. This one doesn't disappoint!

I loved this book for years in my Montessori classroom (15-36 month olds). It makes a great read aloud book -- full sentences, realistic, simple, and enjoyable. My own 20m old daughter now loves it too! :)
