Noni the Pony Goes to the Beach by Alison Lester -- ADVISABLE
Noni and her friends head to the ocean in this rhyming picture book. While there, they slide down the dunes, splash in the waves, and explore tide pools.
The illustrations are adorable -- colorful and lively -- and the rhyming works very well. Although the rhythm is a bit off in a couple of places, it would still work as a read-aloud, especially from a seasoned reader who has prepared in advance. This seems to be a follow-up to Noni the Pony, but it stands alone just fine.
