In this well done kids book, Taffy and his friends plan to spend a fun day at the beach. Together they want to build the "perfect" sand castle, but the beach is very very crowded.
As an adult, let your childhood imagination run wild as you think about the possiblities of still making it a "perfect" day at the beach when plans do not always work out as you expected.
This book has the brightest and most delightful colors. Happy characters and bright sunshire adorn the pages. As the reader, this book made me want to act like a kid again and think about packing up the car and heading out to the beach -- even in February.
I really enjoyed this one and think it will be a kid and parent pleaser.
