Child’s Play. (Raccoon Rambles). Apr. 2024. 12p. Board. $6.99 ISBN 9781786288479.
Toddler-K–At the beach, the colors are bright, the water is cold, shells are plentiful, the wind is brisk enough to fly a kite, and for one small gray raccoon, a good rest means a good book and an apple! Byatt brings a small child’s day at the ocean down to basics, and whether onlookers have been to the beach or not, there is plenty to point out and learn about. Tide pools, a sandcastle, and time to go home means packing up.
VERDICT Cheerful digital forms and the smiling host show toddlers that a first day waterside needs not be scary; ideal fare for the very young.
