ANGELINA BALLERINA BY THE SEA is a fun picture book that features a story about Angelina and her best friend Alice's trip to the beach. Angelina and her family are going to the beach with Cousin Henry and her best friend Alice. At the beach, Angelina and Alice have lot of fun, and they make a really cool sand castle. When they are practicing dance, Angelina accidentally falls and crushes the sand castle. Alice is very sad, and Angelina comes up with a way to apologize and help her feel better. They decide to get some ice cream before rebuilding a sand castle.

What I loved: This is a fun summery story featuring a character young readers know and love. The story is ultimately one about friendship, forgiveness, and making amends. Angelina accidentally crushes the sand castle, which was important to Alice. Although it was not as important to Angelina and an accident, Angelina still apologizes, makes amends, and comforts her friend - an important lesson about friendship. Alice also forgives her in a lesson about moving on and forward. These simple lessons are a great model for young readers.

The text is large and clear on each page. The illustrations are in the signature Angelina Ballerina style, with great details and an elegant look that captures the story well. The book also includes a cardstock picture frame that comes out easily from the perforation and is a quick craft for young readers to extend the fun.

Final verdict: A charming story about friendship and forgiveness, ANGELINA BALLERINA BY THE SEA is a great summery picture book that young readers will enjoy.
