As with all of the Corduroy Lift the Flap books (Easter, Christmas, Beach, Halloween, Firehouse, Zoo, Birthday--no longer in print, and Library), this one rates 5 stars......and we own them all! These rate as our absolute favorites in our book collection. The text is not lengthy and the flaps keep my two 1/2 year olds hands busy enough for me to read the text before he is on to the next page. For this reason, they were the only books we read for a long time. The illustrations are fantastic! The story takes you on the course of Corduroy's day-- packing for the beech, finding a spot in the sand, taking a swim, flying a kite, getting ice cream and going on rides on the boardwalk, and looking for treasures in the sand. Enjoy!

Cute lift the flap story, nothing special. But keep in mind this is NOT an original Corduroy story. Corduroy has apparently left Lisa to buy his own home with a rag tag group of stuffed animals. I miss Lisa in the stories. I miss Corduroy's old face too... guess he is big time now and had work done.
Does not live up to the original Corduroy books.

He has fun with everything he does and always manages an happy ending. This particular adventure is particularly appropriate for our granddaughter who lives in Florida as she goes to the beach on weekends. I would recommend this to anyone with small children and especially if they are taking a beach trip.

My son who is almost 2 - loves this book - we started reading it to him when he was about 1.5 before a trip to the beach. Since then - we have read it almost twice a day since. He loves the lift flaps - it is just simple and yet complex enough to keep his attention. He now asks for it by saying Beach.... I highly recommend this series we also have Corduroy goes to the Library, but goes to the beach is definitely a favorite. Downside is that he wants to go to the beach all the time... if that is a downside ;)

My daughter just loves this book. She loves the pictures, the flaps, the words, everything. It drives us a little crazy, but we read it over and over again. She received it just over a year ago and has not tired of it yet.
She loves when we take trips to the beach and she gets to experience things that happen in the book! She will quote from it, and when we depart from a beach, she says, "Goodbye beach. Thanks for a wonderful day!" Seriously.

This is my 15 month olds favorite book! I do believe she will continue to love it as she gets older also. It's great for memory skills too. I'll ask her to find the beach ball and she remebers which flap it is under! In addition, we live on the beach in the summer and love "beachy" books!
