Animals, colors, numbers, seasons and places—what lovely walks!

Join the fun of finding and counting all the animals, flowers, and insects, as more and more appear on a thrilling walk along the seashore during the summertime. Packed with repetition that young children love and that also helps them learn, this is an entertaining introduction to colors, numbers, and the seasons.


"The interaction afforded by this straightforward search, find, and identify recitation should encourage multiple readings. This eventful walk makes for a hardworking little book." —Kirkus Reviews
