By Justine Smith and Illustrated by Angie Stevens
How lovely to read a sweet little story about a day at the beach. The simple tale of how a mummy and her toddler daughter and another mummy and her baby son go to the beach and have a chance encounter is perfect for under 3’s.
They will love the gentleness of the day’s activities and the dual stories, which run parallel until the two mummies meet and share an umbrella when a brief splatter of rain appears. (Must be the UK!) I love the pen and ink illustration style and you can see more of Angie Steven’s work, like this illustration of her son below, on her blog site www.doodlemum.com
She has also written a partner book, My Daddy Says which is just as good.
