This is a delightful story, that not only depicts Sophie and Goose's day at the beach, but also lovingly shows the friendship between them. I have to say it did remind me of a certain other girl and her feathered friend! However, ignoring that, the text is simple to read and the illustrations are bright and colourful. There is also plenty of scope for imagination and discussion. I particularly enjoyed the part where Goose encourages Sophie into the water: 'Goose takes her hand and they paddle together.' There is also a touching message at the end. Overall, this is a beautiful book, with charming characters, that my son really enjoys. X

We loved this book. Sophie and her best friend Goose are on holiday. Today they are going to the beach. This beautifully illustrated book shows us what happens when the two friends have a new adventure at the beach. The story is wonderful and such fun. Sophie and Goose go for a paddle, build sandcastles, eat ice-cream and more on their day out. I read this to my son and he absolutely loved it. The story leaves lots of room for discussion and it was great fun to add our imaginations to Goose's adventure. Goose is a very endearing character and we've read this book a few times already. We can't wait to see what Goose gets up to next.

A brilliant addition to the goose series by Laura wall. We were waiting for this book to be released as huge goose and Sophie fans. We live near to the beach and the book showed the friends having fun together at the beach. This story shows new friends helping Sophie and goose and making them happy.

This is a great quality book, with lovely illustrations. Which really grab your attention. The story of Sophie and her friend goose who take a trip to the beach. My little boy loves a trip to the beach so he loved this book. His favourate part was when they built the big sandcastle. We will be definitely getting some more from thid series. Would highly recommend.

This is my daughters favourite goose book. Again the illustrations and bright, fun and simple. The story is great with a visit to the beach and my daughter loves it as she goes to the beach so much. She has been going through a phase of being afraid of the sea but if goose and Sophie can go in the sea she can too. As it is a short story she can remember all the words and then reads it on her own when she goes to bed as well.

Love this book and we love Goose!. The story is a lovely cute story about a girl called Sophie and Goose spending the day at the beach. They have fun in the sand and water, they enjoy a picnic and an ice cream and make a big sandcastle. My daughter who is 3 really enjoyed this story and loved to look at all of the pictures which are lovely and so interesting to look at. This book is the one that your child will ask for again and again. We can't wait to read more Goose books!.

A wonderful addition to Laura Wall's 'Goose' series.
Goose at the Beach is beautifully illustrated and the antics of Sophie and Goose captured my daughter's attention, prompting squeaks of delight. 
We found it very easy to act out some of seaside activities enjoyed by the characters - ideal for developing imagination and incorporating into playtime.
A brilliant addition to our story collection.

This is a lovely story about a girl called Sophie and her best friend goose. There are bright illustrations that along with simple sentences tell the story of them on a trip to the seaside. They take part in all our favourite beach activities which kids can relate to. Penny aged 1 really enjoyed the pictures. The style reminded us of Maisy Mouse books which we also love.

A bright, fun, light hearted summer read all about a goose at the beach! A great instalment to the series. It's easy to read and the illustrations are bound to keep your little one interested. We read this book right before going on holiday and it brought so much more excitement to the prospect of going to the beach!

The perfect book to read with any little one before summer holidays or a trip to the seaside. Our youngest loves the goose and we've now read this book dozens of times and she even sits down on her own and pretends to read the book herself (she's 2). Lovely vibrant colours and a nice story keeps little ones interested very well.

Goose at the Beach is such a wonderful story! We have read a few of the other books in the Goose series and Goose at the Beach is one of our favourites! Goose is such a cute character, Isla loves to see what Goose and Sophie get up to! The pictures are lovely and give us plenty to talk about during story time each night! 
We can't wait to get the other books in the series and read about their other adventures!
