On a perfect day Noni the Pony, along with her friends Dave Dog, Coco the Cat and some adventurous cows, head to the beach for an afternoon of sun and sand.

While most of the animals frolick on the shoreline and wade in the surf, Coco, who doesn't like getting her fur wet, decides to take a snooze. While the cat is sleeping, her mischievous friends decide to have some fun by building a moat around Coco and then letting it fill with seawater. Coco is not amused!

When Dave spies some whales off the coastline, he wades out to get a better view but ends up too far away from the shore and has to be rescued by the pony.

After a busy outing it's time to head for home but they'll soon return again to enjoy a repeat of this special outing to the seashore.

This book's cute illustrations and rhyming narrative provide an ideal reading experience for youngsters four years of age and older who are beginning to handle or at least share the reading chores at story time. You'll find that Noni the Pony Goes to the Beach makes for a good transition from simple concept books to more demanding narratives with extended content and short chapters.
