Tovi the Penguin Goes to the Seaside by Janina Rossiter

The Synopsis:

It’s the holiday season. Tovi and his friends are at the seaside. They’re enjoying a great day on the beach but then all of a sudden they find themselves surrounded by water. Can they find a way back to shore? Let’s find out …

Tovi books are designed in a simple animated way to give young readers the impression of watching a short film where Tovi and his friends play out their adventures.

I purchased this book on Kindle and therefore was not required to write a review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.


I’m super ready for summer–let’s be honest, I’m always ready for summer– so Tovi the Penguin Goes to the Seaside made me smile with joyous thoughts of beaches!

I’ve read a few of Tovi’s books before and I love each one of them! They are very simple in both writing and illustrations, and are bright and playful! Tovi and his friends are always learning something new in their adventures.

In this particular book, the young readers have the opportunity to learn about what happens when the ocean’s tide comes in. They also explore the life underwater and learn about shells and crabs.

Tovi the Penguin is a great series for 2-5 years old, because the story is very simple and older kids may lose interest. Overall, I give Tovi the Penguin Goes to the Seaside 4 out of 5 stars!
