Two new books in the Sam series offer more puppy fun for beginning readers. In Sam at the Seaside the sheepdog finds lots of things at the beach she does not like--waves, crabs, seagulls--before she finds something she does like--covering herself with dead fish smell! Sam teaches the new neighbor children about the kinds of games puppies like to play in Sam Goes Next Door. Appealing cartoon drawings and easy vocabulary will make this a popular choice with Kingdergarten-1st grade readers.

Only unhappy things happen to poor Sam on his trip to the beach. Neither my three year old nor I like this one. My son even said, "No, not that one, it makes me sad."
