Baby Unplugged: Beach

“So many different ways to reach a sunny place to play—the beach!”

A celebration of the sandy, salty, wet, and wonderful place we cherish. Sure to inspire the next generation of sandcastle architects, marine biologists, and singer-songwriters.

From the Baby Unplugged™ series, winner of a Mom's Choice Awards Gold Medal and Creative Child Magazine Book of the Year! Celebrating icons of childhood, rooted in how developing brains work. Kids need and learn best through real experiences, real people, and exploring the real world. Technology can wait. Unplug, tune in, and have fun!



“Are you searching for the perfect board book to give to an infant or toddler? Beach, by Dr. John Hutton and illustrated by Andrea Kang, might fit the bill… Beach and the other books in the Baby Unplugged series use happy images and simple, rhyming text to encourage children to explore the real world using all of their senses. The concept is rooted in research on how children’s brains develop.”
