Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is a colorful, vibrantly illustrated book about a brother and sister and their trip to the beach. Older sister Stella has been to the ocean before, but her younger brother, Sam, never has. Sam is constantly asking Stella "why, what and how." Stella kindly answers all the questions (albeit, creatively and not factually, per say, but it's charming reading "her" answers).

Kids should delight at the vivid illustrations and will probably relate well to a kid who asks a lot of questions.

My only complaints are that: I felt the reason Sam didn't want to initially go in the water wasn't exactly explained. Was he afraid of the water? Did he need his questions answered to be unafraid? Was he too curious about other stuff? And also, I felt sometimes the text didn't match the illustrations - like the text was placed one picture too early or too late.
These are pretty nit-picky things though, and really the book is charming! And I love the brother sister relationship - that is truly special!
