The illustrations by Adam Rex are beautiful, detailed, and funny even to a 16 month old. As a mom of littles, I also appreciate that there is just the right amount of words on each page so we can both read the words and talk about the pictures without the kids losing interest (and sometimes I can just speed read when it’s the 11th time I’ve read the book that day!).
I plan on adding Chu's Day at the Beach to our collection soon. We borrowed Chu’s Day at the Beach from the library and it is just as good!
