Surf's Up by Kwame Alexander

Here's a book that talks about two things I love:  Books and the beach.  This is a very cute story with lovely illustrations.  Would you put your book and go surfing or would you take the book with you?

North South Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today, so you can grab a copy now.

Bro and Dude are both frogs (who look very cute in their swimming trunks).  Dude is all anxious to go surfing but Bro is finishing up his book.  To keep Dude happy, he reads his book on the way to the beach.  As he goes, he cheers and yells and tells Dude just enough to make him curious.  Dude started out thinking he was silly for reading.  By the time they reach the beach, Bro is done with his book and hits the beach.  Dude hits the book and starts reading.

My Mom and I read a lot.  Whichever one of us started the book, the other one waited anxiously for our turn.  I think maybe Bro has started something here.
