Paddington Bear has taken a trip to the beach. He has brought his shovel and pail. Of course, he makes a sandcastle. He has brought his kite to fly. The seagulls are very intrigued by him. They notice that Paddington has also brought a bun. How many seagulls will it take to steal Paddington’s bun? It’s lucky that Paddington always carries a marmalade sandwich in his hat, just in case.
This fun children’s storybook is filled with endearing and memorable illustrations. Everyone who has been to the beach can relate to Paddington’s mishaps and the personalities of the seagulls. Paddington at the Beach also helps little ones who are just starting to learn their numbers and count from one to ten. It’s a book with just enough words to tell the story without losing the interest of even the youngest readers. What a great book to have in your library!
