Picture Book Review: By the Sea, Berenstain Bears

By the Sea: Tales from Bear Country: The Berenstains, Random House, New York, 1998 (republished 2011)

The Berenstain Bears are ready for a vacation, but when they arrive at the beach mother has some cleaning plans for the kids, rather than heading directly for the sea.  There is sand to sweep out of the beach house, and things to unpack, and beds to make, and walks to rake, and closets to clean, and food to eat, and, and....  Will the bears ever make it to the water.  Yes they will, and it is worth the wait.
The art is again consistent through the Berenstain world.  And the story makes a pretty good rhyme.
