I can see why other reviewers are smitten by this book, as am I. I bought this to read to my two little girls this summer in preporation for the beach, they loved it and were so inspired by the various ideas they got from the two adorable kids featured in the book . It is beautifully illustrated, sweetly worded and a sweet innocent classic.

I bought this book for my five year old granddaughter, who shares my love of the shore. The story is so cute, and the illustrations are beautiful. Takes me back to my childhood!

Super cute illustrations, but the experience described in going to the beach is really outdated (understandably). It was interesting to see the mid-century version of a day at the beach, but I was surprised how many differences there are between that and my daughter's vacation experience, which we were seeking to relive in book form :) Unless these things are a "West Coast" thing. Here's the plot:

The kids wake up and hurry downstairs to eat breakfast, after putting their "sun suits" on
The kids, parents and puppy take the bus to the beach
They get to the beach and stop at the stand to buy buckets and toys
They go to the changing rooms and change into their bathing suits
Play on the beach - draw with sticks, chase crabs, etc, timeless activities
The little girl holds onto a rope in the ocean anchored by stakes, so she can kick in the waves safely
Mom calls them for a picnic and they "are hungry as bears, they eat and eat and eat!" The end. Clunky ending, you'd think for all the detail they described they'd watch the sunset and go home, its funny that the big result of their beach day is "we worked up an appetite for cookies and oranges in wax paper!"

I recommend Seashore Baby for little toddlers, it has flaps. We do love this book, but I do a lot of paraphrasing.

A beautifully illustrated book with simple words that younger children can understand. A timeless classic. One of the books I enjoy reading as much as my granddaughter.

i had a lot of golden books when i was growing up and enjoyed them very much. Bought them for my children now the grandkids i enjoy reading them again. the graphics of the 50's brings back memories of how we dressed etc. the book itself was in new condition never even been opened, i'll say the vender is trustworthy. very satisfied with the product, great stories even for the technowleged kids of today. My grandkids have kindles and i still think holding a book is part of a good reading experience.

This book brings back beautiful memories of raising our children, protecting them from harm, encouraging their joyous inquisitiveness. Something so simple as a day at the beach becomes a time of wonder and education for our little ones. This book captures the salty air, the chatter of happy children, the rush of the waves hitting the shore then whooshing back out to sea. Lovely book - classic beauty.

Awesome and with wonderful illustrations. Also the sewn bindery allows for lots of love from a child. The story will thrill little folks for generations. Our own children grew up with little golden books and now we can get them for our grandchildren!

I like the book, but it is quite old fashioned, which isn't a terrible thing. My 2.5 year old son likes to read it, and it keeps his interest. He even has some of the lines memorized, so it must captivate him.
