B is for Beach

Here are some great children's books about the seashore:

Holm, Matthew, and Jennifer L. Holm. Babymouse: Beach Babe!Babymouse, 3. New York: Random House Children's Books, 2006.
Babymouse is the cutest surfer girl on the shelf.

Wiesner, David. Flotsam. New York: Clarion Books, 2006.
David Wiesner's wordless picture book received the highest honor in children's book illustration, The Caldecott Medal.

Graham, Margaret B, and Gene Zion. Harry by the Sea. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1965.
It's another case of mistaken identity for Harry, the dirty dog.

Huneck, Stephen. Sally Goes to the Beach. New York: Abrams, 2000.
Roxxy and Jake love this book. (They are partial to black labs.)

Lee, Suzy. Wave. San Francisco, Calif: Chronicle Books, 2008.
A little girl overcomes her fear of waves. Like Flotsam, this book doesn't need words to tell its story.
