Nothing is better than a day of sunshine and friends at the beach. Cordelia and her little brother are joined by their dinosaur friends for some splashing, sandcastle building, and tanning in the sun. They have a picnic, find seashell treasures in the sand, and discover a Sea Rex in the water. They discover that every day is always more fun with friends.
Another entertaining edition to Molly Idle’s Rex series, Sea Rex brings the adventure of friendship to the beach. The illustrations are always the highlight of this talented illustrator’s books with gems such as a consistent tan outline of where Cordelia’s brother lay on T-Rex’s body while they were tanning (or sunburning). This fun book teaches about a typical day at the beach, friendship, and staying safe in the water. A recommended read for readers of all ages.
