Bex Archer. Alfie and the Beach. Book Review.

Click here to buy Alfie and the beach (Alfie bear Book 2)

The target audience for this book is ages 3 to 5. Pictures of what I think are bears playing at the beach are cute and simple. Alfie goes to the beach for the first time with his friend Jack. They play hide and seek and Alfie thinks he has been forgotten. They play with a beach ball which gets tossed into the ocean and returned by a dolphin. It ends with, “this is the best game ever,” laughed Alfie.

At times the length of text and the vocabulary does not match the simplicity of the story and the pictures. A child of age three or four would have difficulty following the narration. An older child would want more to the story.
