NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 14

If You Ever Want to Bring a Piano to the Beach, DON'T! 
by Elise Parsley. May 2016. 40 pages.

From Amazon: "If your mom says to get ready to play at the beach, she means with a boat, or a Frisbee, or a shovel. She is NOT talking about the piano. But Magnolia is a little girl with a big idea, determination, and one very heavy upright piano that, she insists, she needs to take with her. What's the worst that can happen? In a riotous series of mishaps, Magnolia quickly learns that--not surprisingly--a piano doesn't mix well with sand, sun, and seagulls! "

My thoughts: We're a musical family, and my kids play on our piano all the time. So the idea of bringing our big piano to the beach was hysterical to them! While this would never happen in real life, there is a good talking point here about what is appropriate to bring to the beach or on any other trip. Maybe your child wants to bring a special blanket or fancy toy, but there is the risk of losing or destroying it.

Recommended Age: 4-7 years
