New Frontier Publishing, 2019. ISBN: 9781925594355.
(Ages: 0-3) Board Book. Themes: Beaches. This is one in a new series for babies called Can you find? (others are Under the ocean, In the forest, On the farm). Nancy's previous titles have included the ZenTails and Mad Dog the chef series. In this book, each page says 'At the Beach there is . . . ' and then shows and names three things found at the beach (sea, flip-flops, sandcastles, boogie boards, kayaks, seagulls, goggles etc. The illustrations are large, happy and fun but quite realistically drawn. Each page has a contrasting background colour. The last page says 'Can you find all the things at the beach?' and shows all of the illustrations included within the previous pages.
These are simple but impressive early vocabulary books that encourage parent-child interaction and positive book experiences for babies.
