Beach Babies (Local Baby Books)
Spirited and charming images pair with quirky text to introduce young readers to a group of smart, active, stylish, and just plain silly tots while they enjoy a day at the beach. From the seaside to the lakeshore to the riverbank, this educational and entertaining read is as essential to a beach bag as a bucket and sunscreen.
