What to Expect: Natural history, science, mathematics
Combining natural history, counting, and science in one story, Mandy Goes to the Beach is a fun way to introduce young readers to the idea of exploring one’s environment through observation, questioning, and discovery.
Mandy the house spider is ready for a vacation—and what better place to visit than the beach? When she arrives, everything is different and a little bit scary; luckily, she meets Tyler the beach spider. With his help, Mandy learns all about the different creatures at the beach, from the dangerous and crafty seagulls who trick earthworms by imitating rain to the timid sand crabs and strange-looking sea stars who are only dangerous if you get too close. The beach is full of interesting sights, and Mandy enjoys learning all about them—but she’s glad to get home again afterward!
Mandy is a likeable character, and her fears and frights will help readers that may be scared of spiders consider the possibility that spiders are just as frightened of them as they are of spiders. Fascinating and specific details about beach animals are incorporated into the story and brought to life by cartoon-like illustrations, offering readers an accessible introduction to natural history.
Overall, Mandy Goes to the Beach is a quick and easy story, perfect for introducing new or struggling readers to a range of environmental themes.
