Let's Go to the Seaside!

By Caryl Hart
Illustrated by Lauren Tobia

Bare toes scrunch in crunchy sand, children run and play. Look, it's Bee and Billy... They're on the beach today!

Join friends Billy and Bee in the third instalment of a brand-new "First Experiences" series set in the urban city centre. Today let's go to ... the seaside! They’re building sandcastles, watching kites fly up-high, eating ice-cream and – for the very first time – feeling the splash of the sea and the crunch of the sand between their toes… A gorgeously illustrated, bouncy celebration of the seaside experience, perfect for reading with a toddler before (and during!) a trip to the beach.

  • A fantastic springboard to discuss the seaside experience with readers as young as 18 months+
  • Very friendly format: the titles have rounded corners, card stock, and a strong series ‘look’ which centres around toddler-friendly pastel colours
  • This series is part of Walker's contribution to the #weneeddiversebooks campaign, aiming to reflect both the diversity in society and modern family dynamics
