There's nothing quite like a day at the beach! And Alice Schertle and Barbara Lavallee's clever companion to All You Need for a Snowman is the perfect recipe for fun in the sun. Plant a yellow umbrella in the sand, roll out a beach towel, and pour a glass of frosty lemonade. . . .

But wait! What's the most important part of a beach? A surprise ending will inspire young adventurers everywhere to don their shades and head for the beach.
