Kid Lit: Surf's Up

I received this book for free from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


Surf's Up by Katy Hudson

To be published on February 1, 2016.

Goodreads Summary:
Surf's up! Not yet, Dude! Books are boring! Not this one! Bro and Dude have very different ideas about how to spend the day at the beach. But as Bro continues to gasp and cheer as he reads his book (Moby Dick), Dude can't help but get curious. Before you can shout 'Surf's up!' both frogs are sharing the same adventure, that is, until they get to the beach. Newbery Medal Winner, Kwame Alexander, and Daniel Miyares have joined forces to give little listeners a wild ride.

My Thoughts:
This book is perfect for book lovers! Anyone who hasn't want to put down a book with enjoy sharing this adorable tale with their children. Two frogs are supposed to go surfing, but one frog cannot put his book down. The story of a man trying to catch a whale is too good to wait. While they make their way to the beach, that frog continues reading, and his comments about the story get the other frog interested in the story. So much so that he ends up reading when they get to the beach.

The drawings were cute. The language was simple. The story was just so great. I read this book alone, but I will definitely need to read it with my son as he's a book lover too. I think he will appreciate the story.

My Rating: 4 Stars
