This is a neat mixture of authentic (I live in Kona near Banyan's & can vouch for those waves, board shorts & expressions) and go for it imagination by author Dempsey & illustrator Cole. Accompanying the worthy story are colorful full-page illustrations, clever verse, and enough action to hold attention from about 3 to 6 years old chicks & dudes..
A little backstory: about 30 years ago, there were not too many surfer chicks, particularly among the top competitors. Now, go for it, gals and guys!
Buyer Alert? The book is a big, glossy-paper 10" x10" super-size square, not a board book in the just-hatched chicks sense. Also, Dad to me looks more like a mighty well-fed hen than a rooster (no comb,hen-like tail feathers rather than a noble cock tail) although most children probably won't notice. Not a deal-breaker for me. A 1 year old who has already been on the board and her ripped surfer-dude Dad are getting this for Father's Day and I feel sure they are gonna LOVE it.
I bought the kindle version, but used it on my computer to read it to the group--I really liked how you can click on the words to enlarge them. This way, the kids could read parts of the sentences, and ask about words they didn't recognise.
I enjoy the book so much, I'd like to have a hardback copy as well!

We love this book. The story is great. The illustrations are so colorful and work well with the story. We first took it out at the library and had to buy a copy for ourselves.Published 16 months ago by BookLady649

This is a great rhyming story - lots of surfer and beach slang. Cute illustrations. Bought this for my three year old daughter. Can see this being a hit for many more years.Published on March 12, 2014 by HGTM
