Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Cynthia Rylant's story (S & S, 1996) about a fun-filled day's adventure on the beach between a boy and his 180-pound dog is told with youthful enthusiasm by John Beach. He reads a bit slowly, which will be a great help to beginning readers as they concentrate on both the book and the cassette. The signal to turn the pages sounds like paper turning. Sound effects, such as the tide rushing in and Mudge barking and gobbling down three hot dogs in one bite enhance the narration. Sure to be popular with parents, teachers, and emerging readers, this cassette/book provides an enjoyable reading experience that will boost the confidence of new readers.

So the content of the story is enjoyable for kids, but what I like about this book is that it truly is an early reader.

Format: Paperback
My 1st grader just loves Henry and Mudge books. They are "chapter" books-- and not "baby" books. But, they are easy to read. (Easier than Magic Tree House, for example.) Plus, this series appeals to both boys and girls (but especially boys).

This particular books captures the essence of going on a trip to the beach: the anticipation, the long drive, the waves, the crabs. This book would also make a good read-aloud for a younger child about to go on a trip to the beach.

Note: you might want to purchase Henry And Mudge First Book before this book or with this book. It introduces the characters used in the rest of the series.

Enjoy!

The winsome, colorful illustrations in the Henry and Mudge books are delightful. I used to read the series when I was in elementary school. This one, for whatever reason, has remained my favorite and is actually the only one I owned personally. Any fellow dog-loving children should enjoy learning to read and explore with Henry and Mudge, as well as other book series like 'Nate the Great,' a detective. Recommended.

I picked this book out at our local library for my two year old daughter because she loves dogs and the beach. It turned out to be such a big hit that I am buying it! She of course can't read, but enjoyed the story and pictures very much. She loves Mudges playfullness and had just been to the beach recently so she could relate to Henry and his father playing in the water. The length of the story is just right also for her. It's a wonderful book and we are buying two more from the series besides this one!

We have many of the Henry & Mudge stories. We love the humor, thoughtfulness, and the way the love and bond between a child and his dog is captured in these stories. This one is a favorite of mom and dad. We would probably read it without reading it to the children - because of the memories this story brings back of visits to the beach. The children, of course, also love it!

By Crease in the Page on January 18, 2012
Format: Paperback
As a home-schooler, I am using Henry and Mudge books to teach my daughter to read. She went through the "Now I'm Reading" series to learn the sounds of phonemes, but this book is the first "real" book she has read. She loves the very realistic child and dog experience of going to the ocean, and she laughs at the silly things each character does... Henry looks at everything and tries everything while Mudge sniffs everything, Henry savors his hotdog while Mudge gulps his down and Henry's father puts tons of gross toppings on his hotdog (well, kids think they're gross toppings). So the content of the story is enjoyable for kids, but what I like about this book is that it truly is an early reader. So often leveled readers contain massive character names or sight words that are way beyond a child, but this book is, for the most part, very readable for kids who know their phonemes--most words are single-syllables and the sight words are pretty basic. A great story!

Our preschooler has enjoyed Henry and Mudge and the Forever Sea many, many times since we purchased it from Amazon a year ago. As other reviewers have noted, this short but engaging "first chapter book" captures many of the highlights of a young child's trip to the beach: the anticipation during the car ride, ocean waves, sand castles, sno cones, and a surprise sea creature. Mudge, in his understated way, is ever the loyal companion and gets a small moment of glory all his own.

As a series, these books are fantastic. They capture the simple pleasures of everyday life through a child's eyes, yet they are not childish, overly silly, or condescending to young readers. The illustrations are whimsical and sweet. And the length is just right for the youngest readers.

Format: Paperback
A likeable series of books. This endeavor is a trip to the beach of father, son, dog. Just plain fun. No messages. Two people and a dog introducing a child to the beach while enjoying each others' company. Highly recommended. What I like is create the interest and the parent can later introduce the precautions. No mention of undertow, tides, sunscreen, broken glass, etc. that can be on the way to or at the beach.

This is not properly formatted for the Kindle. It was poorly adapted and will lead to frustration when you attempt to interact with this book on your Kindle. My kid, who grew up with tablets and Kindles, finds this to be distracting and loses interest in the story. You would be better off with a real book version of this until they decide to properly adapt this book for e-readers.
