Bears at the Beach

By Shirley Parenteau
Illustrated by David Walker

Who wants to build a castle? The adorable bears are back—and at the shore having buckets of fun (with just a few spills along the way).

Here’s a wave-washed beach where a castle can stand! Where are the bears to build on the sand? Whee! Yellow and Fuzzy lift their shovels to start building a sandcastle so tall it will reach the sky. Floppy and Calico are ready to mold the towers. Big Brown Bear helps them pack the sand tightly—but still the towers collapse when the buckets are overturned. Oops! The sand is too dry! What will happen if they move really close to the water? With Shirley Parenteau’s rhyming verse and David Martin’s irresistibly cute illustrations, little readers are invited to join the bears for some trial and error—and creative cooperation—on a perfect day at the beach.

  • The ninth title in the irresistibly charming picture book series starring four little bears and one big bear
  • Like the other books in the series, the adorable art and cheerfully rhyming text present a toddler-like dilemma which the five bears solve by sharing and working together
  • The beach setting make this a perfect choice for summer-themed displays, not only in beach communities, but everywhere
