“Come to the beach, where the sea is blue, and little white waves come running at you. A wave comes splashing, over your toes. You just stand still, and away it goes. We’ll build a castle down by the sea, and look for shells if you’ll come with me.” – Anonymous

Review and Comments
Henry and Mudge and the Forever Sea is the sixth book in a series of twenty-eight beginning chapter books for emerging readers. In this particular episode, Henry, his dad, and his pet dog, Mudge, spend a fun filled day the beach.
“The ocean was waiting. It was blue and white and forever.”
When they finally arrive they immediately run for the water. Henry and Dad are very brave playing in the big waves, but Mudge isn’t quite so sure about the surf. He prefers the beach and a nice snooze in the sand. Besides the water fun, Dad and Henry build a sand castle and eat hot dogs and snow cones. There is a bit of excitement when a large, unexpected wave covers the castle and loyal Mudge bravely rescues Dad’s favorite red lobster. Their day ends with a pleasant walk on the beach. It is definitely a father-son-dog day to remember.Continue reading Fun at the Beach: A Review of ‘Henry and Mudge and the Forever Sea’
