In this cheerful board book, a toddler visits the beach. A large illustration appears on each right-hand page, while the facing page includes several sentences with certain beach-related words appearing in bold (sun, sun hat, swimming trunks, shell, and so on). These items, illustrated individually above the text, also appear in the large picture. Translated from the Dutch, the text may be a little long for the board-book audience, but it need not be read in full. Plenty of young children will enjoy just looking at the pictures—simple paintings defined by bold black lines and rich colors. A summer treat. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
