A Day at the Beach

Babies are hands-on (and mouths-on) explorers. As your baby spends time exploring the “beach” (no sunscreen needed!) in this wonderfully illustrated board book, he will be able to touch and feel a different shape and texture each time a page is turned. The simple verse invites you and your baby to look for the featured shape elsewhere in the artwork, adding a playful “spot the shapes” game to the fun in this sturdy book.

Tie-in Activity: Many babies love to play in the sand when they’re old enough, whether it’s at the beach or in a sand box under your watchful eye. But if your baby doesn’t like the feeling of the sand and isn’t allergic to corn, consider putting few inches of cornmeal into a shallow, flat-bottomed container. He can dump and fill just as well!
