Bare toes scrunch in crunchy sand, children run and play. Look, it’s Bee and Billy… They’re on the beach today!

Join friends Billy and Bee in the third instalment of a brand-new “First Experiences” series set in the urban city centre. Today let’s go to … the seaside! They’re building sandcastles, watching kites fly up high, eating ice cream and – for the very first time – feeling the splash of the sea and the crunch of the sand between their toes…

A gorgeously illustrated, bouncy celebration of the seaside experience, perfect for reading with a toddler before (and during!) a trip to the beach.

Review new 2021

Let’s Go to the Seaside! is the third book in the “First Experiences” series from Caryl Hart and Walker books, the first book was called ‘Let’s Go to Nursery!‘ and introduced us to the characters of Bee and Billy. The second book was called ‘Let’s Go to the Farm!‘.

In this third book, the two friends are visiting the seaside and having fun on the beach. They eat ice cream, paddle in the sea and build sandcastles. The two friends are having so much fun that they don’t want to go home.

This is an adorable book for little children and complements the series perfectly with its rhyming text and beautiful full-page illustrations that children won’t be able to take their eyes off. All the books in the series have been so sweet and lovely and feature the children doing activities that all little children do at some point.

The beach is a magical place for toddlers and most find it truly fascinating, I just wish my children kept that excitement about the beach, now teenagers they hate it.

I can see Let’s Go to the Seaside wanting to be read over and over again.
