Overview

Dedicated to simple yet developmentally stimulating icons and experiences of childhood, this series encourages children to have fun discovering the world through the real world rather than through screen-based media. The beach is a sandy, salty, wet, and wonderful place we all cherish and this book revels in its glory. The next generation of sandcastle architects, marine biologists, and singer-songwriters will be inspired by its joy-inducing sights, sounds, and smells.

Reviews

“Are you searching for the perfect board book to give to an infant or toddler? Beach, by Dr. John Hutton and illustrated by Andrea Kang, might fit the bill. . . . Beach and the other books in the Baby Unplugged series use happy images and simple, rhyming text to encourage children to explore the real world using all of their senses.”  —Elizabeth Gerold-Miller, Examiner.com

"I’ve found that while the Baby Unplugged series by Dr. John Hutton allows parents to joyfully and easily engage in reading with their children using books that contain beautiful illustrations and words, they beg for conversation between adults and children about the ideas presented that speak to our senses, our fundamental human needs and the wonders of life around us. True gems to behold, embrace and make the most of.”  —Eric Dustman, MEd, director, the New School Montessori
