Description

It’s beach time for a playful pony and her friends in this lighthearted celebration of friendship and loyalty from the author of Noni the Pony, which The New York Times called “an unabashedly sweet and simple tale about a happy pony…related in laid-back couplets that work perfectly for young children.”

Noni the Pony and her friends are off to the beach! Their playful day is going swimmingly—until Dave Dog follows a whale a bit too far out to sea. Luckily, Noni is there to rescue the poor pup and bring him back to safety…and back to the fun!

Praise For Noni the Pony Goes to the Beach

PreS–Another lovely rhyming book for preschoolers about Noni and her friends, Dave the Dog, Coco the Cat, and the “ladies next door”(cows), who go to the beach for a day of frolicking and splashing. Simple, happy illustrations depict the friends’ day, against a backdrop of pale turquoise sea, sandy beige beaches, and the rosy pink of a sunset once the friends turn homewards. VERDICT A perfect blend of text and pictures makes this an outstanding offering for the youngest crowd.
