Backpack Explorer: Beach Walk is a fun book to take with you on a family beach day. It includes information on local critters and plants that kids (or adults) will enjoy searching for along the beach as well as several games and activities. Hopscotch, tic-tac-toe, AND bullseye in the sand? Yes, please! Stickers at the back make it even more enticing.
