Released April 2011

Reviewed by Bob Walch

The third book featuring Ollie the lovable zebra, this adorable picture book explains why Ollie loves vacationing at the seashore so much. Along with his friend Fred, a spotted dog, Ollie can collect shells, splash in the water and watch the waves.

Fred and Ollie also love to float offshore in their sailboat and watch turtles swim beneath the boat. When they return to shore the pair enjoy  munching on “sandy sandwiches” and licking a “drippy ice cream” cone. What fun!  And when it is time to go to bed, Ollie and Fred slip into their tent and sleeping bags and fall asleep listening to the waves on the beach.

A simple story that captures the pleasure of a day at the beach, this picture book is perfect for beginning readers. After reading the story, ask the child what he or she likes best about a trip to the seashore or what other type of vacation he or she enjoys.
