Beth Greenway, Alexis America (Illustrator)
Boardbook, 17 pp.
It’s never too early to begin reading to your child, and this new, sturdy board book, perfect for drooling gums and curious hands is sure to become a favorite bedtime book.
Babies will be drawn to the simple rhythm and rhyme of the text; toddlers will love the repetition and soft illustrations, and will enjoy following the characters as they end their day’s activities and enter the time of dreams. Adults will relate to the nostalgic-feel of the illustrations which conjure up old Waikiki in the days when visitors arrived by boat and the soft strums of an ukulele could be heard on the beach.
It’s the perfect goodnight lullaby; the rocking rhythm of the text and the soft pastel palette will lull even the wiggliest child to sleep to dream of another day of surfing, hula dancing, or just playing on the beach.
