WILD & WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY: The beach book by Fiona Danks and Jo Schofield
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Beach Book presents a whole host of activities and adventures to be enjoyed on the water's edge by the sea, lakes and rivers.
The summer time means going to the beach for a lot of people, including myself. And while just hanging out can be a fun activity there are so many other options for making the outdoors and especially the beach not only a fun place to be but a learning place to be. The beach book provides a whole bunch of different types of activities that can be planned and executed on a beach. That beach can be located near a river, a stream, a lake or the ocean. There is sure to be something here for most people, especially children. The activities are divided up into the following categories: beach adventures, beach wildlife, beach games, beach art, beach imagination, beach at night, and beach rubbish. Each activity is described and labeled with one of three safety ratings (1-3, one for being okay to do alone, three for activities that should include an adult). I found the book full of really fun sounding activities. I can't wait to visit the beach and try some of these out.
