Format: Board book
...but the text just didn't do it for me or the kids ("Beach babies wear shades"; "Beach babies wave bye-bye"). It almost would have been better without any words at all.

The earlier Urban Babies Wear Black (An Urban Babies Wear Black Book) was popular at least with a certain demographic, but Beach Babies seems like a weak effort to capitalize on follow-up sales.

P.S. Is it possible to show Dads in a worse light? In the two panels showing fathers, they are either 1) reading the newspaper instead of playing with their baby, or 2) can't get back to the car fast enough while baby is still saying goodbye to the beach. Very bad examples of us Dads who actually get involved.

P.P.S. Women with poor self-esteem may not want to read this book. All the women portrayed appear to be six feet tall and weigh approximately ninety pounds. (And that's *after* giving birth! LOL)

But she doesn't "nap under the stars" .
We were given this book at the hospital when she was born and have been reading it to our daughter regularly. She loves to sign the words she now understands as she reads along.
It is a cute book with few words, good for a very young child.

I love Urban Babies Wear Black and Winter Babies Wear Layers, but I was a little disappointed by this book. The text and the play on words seem a little forced. I'm hoping they will come out with another book about summer babies.

Nice book for the beach. It is better than some in this series, but Winter Babies Wear Layers is still my favorite. Better than Country Babies. Not too many words to distract baby and easy to read over and over and over again.
