When you next go to the beach try to notice all the colors around you. You will find that the beach is a very colourful place. The little boy and his dog have found lots of colourful things to show you. There is the little strip of pink on the boy’s nose where the sun has touched it; there is the pretty green of the sea and the striking white of the boy’s little tummy as he stands on his hands.

The author of this vivid board book manages to capture the essence of a day at the beach through her exploration of color. Small children will enjoy naming the colors that are being highlighted on the pages.
