Super cute illustrations, but the experience described in going to the beach is really outdated (understandably).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.

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.

One of the great vintage Golden Books! My 11-month-old wants to read this over and over. We got her a few books about the beach so that she would know what to expect on her first vacation, and I think it worked. This one is the perfect length and has nice sing-songy rhyming text for toddlers.

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.

A really cute little book about two kids and their adventures at the seashore with their dog. Cute illustrations, fun text. My 4 year old son enjoyed reading this in anticipation of our own beach vacation.

I vividly remembered this book from when I was a child reading my mom's well-loved copy. Glad I could get a new version so my children won't tear Mom's to bits! My toddler loves the book. Nice rhyming and cadence.
