Surf’s Up by Kwame Alexander


Back of Book:
Surf’s up! Not yet, Dude! Books are boring! Not this one! Bro and Dude have very different ideas about how to spend the day at the beach. But as Bro continues to gasp and cheer as he reads his book (Moby Dick), Dude can’t help but get curious. Before you can shout ‘Surf’s up!’ both frogs are sharing the same adventure, that is, until they get to the beach.
My Review:
This story takes the idea that books are boring and turns it upside down. The story follows two friends Bro, and Dude as they prepare to enjoy some time at the beach. The only problem is that Bro ants to finish his book. Dude thinks that books are boring but by the end of the story he changes his mind. The text is simple to read which makes it perfect for beginning readers. I love the message it sends to readers about the importance of reading over the summer. The illustrations are fun and the frog characters are truly enduring. This is a must-read addition to any summer reading list!
