From New York Times bestselling illustrator Christine Davenier and bestselling author Amy E. Sklansky comes this utterly charming, silly, and irresistible read-aloud that sends the little piggies from everyone's favorite nursery rhyme off to the beach.

Following the rhythm and rhyme scheme of the original (This little piggy went to market..), young children get to follow along as the five piggies pack the car, arrive at the beach, build a sand castle, swim and explore, and play with a beach ball.

It's the perfect read-aloud for young children and their adults, providing lots to look at, loads of fun action, and a perfect ending to a perfect day at the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Join in the fun the piggies are having at the beach I love this book. The illustrations are delightful and kids will love them. They are packed full of action and emotions and they take the reader right into the beach scene along with five adorable piggy characters. No wonder she is a New York Times bestselling illustrator and if you partner her with a bestselling author you are sure to have a winner. Written in rhyme and using the rhythm of "This little piggy went to market...", this energetic fun book invites you to come along and spend a day at the beach just hanging out and enjoying all the things you can do there. You watch the piggies load up their car, happily arrive at their destination, build creative sand castles in the sand, cool off in the water and play with a colourful beachball. They are experiencing a total day of freedom. So much fun! My favourite piggy of all? You guessed it... the one ever with her nose in a book. It made me laugh to see how much she loved to read and for her reading and beach fun was a pefect combo. Awesome piggie! "These Little Piggies Go To The Beach" is a perfect segue into a day you might mirror with your own family at the waterfront, whether it is longing for a dip in the water to cool off from the hot summer sun or used as an escape from the cold wintry weather just to get a break and seek out the sun. The message you come away with is that beach life rocks and a day apart to enjoy all it has to offer is a perfect day indeed. I highly recommend this book.
