This had fun and exciting illustrations that certainly catch the eye.
The story itself wasn't all that captivating and sometimes the phrasing was weird, but I think for the pictures alone it's worth adding it into storytime.

The little wolfboy was super adorable!

Vampirina On The Beach is full of fun, vivid, and colorful illustrations. Vampirina uses her adventures to teach her friends right and wrong. I enjoyed reading how Vampirina and her friends all work together and show each other kindness.

I loved how she takes every opportunity to teach her friends how to do different things safely and the correct way, such as snorkeling, surfing, playing volleyball and even building a sandcastle.

The BEST Vampirina book yet. It also teaches kids to be safe at the ocean which is a HUGE plus, especially if you have a little daredevil child.

Following the same format as Vampirina in the Snow, this book follows Vampirina through a series of activities. However, I felt that the target audience for this book must be a bit older than Vamperina in the Snow. Some of the beach activities, such as surfing and volleyball, seem to be for older children. I imagined Vampirina would be wading in the water, eating snacks, and collecting sea shells. Vampirina does build a sandcastle though which seemed to be appropriate for the age group I would r ...more

VAMPIRINA AT THE BEACH is a beautifully crafted, well-illustrated story about all the things you can do at a beach while still being safe. It's a perfect children's read with our fast approaching summer.

VAMPIRINA AT THE BEACH has vivid, colorful pictures that my daughter loved so much that she just wanted to touch every page. The story is about all the fun activities you can do at the beach, like surfing, building a sand castle, swimming, volleyball, etc. I love how they teach that you should al

When can a vampire go surfing? When there's a full moon of course! Vampirina and all her scary friends and family are seen in their cars, on their way to the beach. All the cars are filled with scary characters except for one, where a human family is driving along, unfazed by the creatures around them. Vampirina and the human boy try all sorts of activities and games, where they are not successful at being number one, but Vampirina doesn't mind. As the night progresses, the reader sees how the h ...more

This series of books is what the new Disney Junior show "Vampirina" is loosely based on. This is the first book we read from this series, not realizing it's a series. So I thought the dance references were a little strange. That is, until I saw the other two books advertised on the back about "Vampirina Ballerina". Then it all made sense.

My daughter just completed her first dance recital (it was a ballet/tap class) so we're extra excited that this is about a dancing vampire! There isn't any dial

Cute story of a vampire girl playing with her friends on the beach at night. Clever way to introduce kids about what to expect on adventure to the beach or help get them over their frights at such a big and different place. Fun illustrations.

Not as awful as I expected after having seen the TV show. It satisfied my 4 year old and I was able to convince her that since we read Vampirina she did not need screen time.

Vampirina goes to the beach for an epic party at night with her monstrous friends. Easily fitting into the canon of other books in this series, fans will delight in this addition.

So cute. I love the color scheme, and the giant dance party page, and the page where they're all exploring underwater.
