Recommends it for: parents of toddlers who like the beach
I almost didn't buy this book. So glad I did. My son just loves it! He pretends he is at the beach and is the little boy in the book. So cute. I just love the illustrations, they transport you to a world when times were simpler.

I passed this book up the first time I saw it but glad I picked it up the second time around. It brought back great memories of trips to Florida. Walking on the beach smelling that sandy air. Making sand castles and collecting seashells. The artwork was sweet and simple. Reminded me of books my grandmother would read to me. Great book to add to any golden book collection.

I don't want to leave!

I think a day at the shore hasn't changed much, if one wants to enjoy its simple pleasures. What fun I had with Nancy & Tim, and I could feel the hot sand and taste those cookies for lunch. The only footnote: Apply sunscreen liberally and often. Otherwise, have fun, kids and kids at heart!

A sweet old timey book (Golden Book) about a family visiting the seashore, complete with numbered changing rooms and a roped off swimming area and a big picnic lunch. Alice likes the puppy.

This is a great book about a fun time at the beach. It throws me off a little when I read it because sometimes it rhymes and sometimes it doesn't.
