    One thought on “Surf's Up”

    1. Like catching the perfect wave on a hot summer day, there s truly nothing better than getting lost in a great book.

    2. Dude comes to the window to let Bro know Surf s up But Bro is busy reading his book Dude is shocked that Bro would prefer reading to heading to the beach Bro comes along, still reading his book as they walk along As they walk, he tells Dude about Moby Dick s story and then reacts with gasps and amazement as the story continues Bro finishes the book as they reach the beach and suddenly it is Dude who wants to read than he wants to surf.Told in a merry back and forth between the two frogs, this p [...]

    3. Long ago, I dealt with a sweet, misguided parent who wanted an abridged version of Moby Dick or, The Whale for her two year old We settled for some nice picture books about whales And don t get me started on those asshat BabyLit board books, except perhaps to say that there are a lot of parents out there currently who are silly enough to buy such stuff They would be better off buying some nice parenting books to teach them how to say no to their little darlings But see You got me startedWell, I [...]

    4. I loved the concept of this book, a frog is so into his book that he has to finish it, and gets his friend interested, too This story line could have been clearer The illustrations were bright and colorful and very much mirrored water and motion The story appears to pull from Moby Dick which is one of the driest, least exciting and technical books I ve ever read It did not represent the story line well.

    5. I found this to be very energetic and fun One friend is trying to finish up a book and the other is eager to get to the beach It s a book that celebrates the joy and excitement of reading.

    6. A fun book about the joy of getting lost in a book, told in an unexpected way through two grog friends Love the joy and fun in Daniel Miyares illustrations

    7. A solemn promise has to be made first When shopping with certain friends this is a requirement A pledge has to be taken to not stop in any book shops When you ve been known to spend hours wandering around the shelves, especially in the children s and young adult areas, people tend to err on the side of caution In a conversation this past week I even remarked given a choice I would rather be reading Surf s Up North South Books, Inc February 1, 2016 a brand new book by Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexa [...]

    8. Two frogs on their way to surf at the beach are having a discussion about the merits of reading One of the frogs is engrossed in Moby Dick and can t put it down until he finishes the book His enthusiastic responses to the action in the story intrigue his friend, who must find out the ending of the story, which can only be accomplished by reading the book for himself What I really like about this book about reading are the illustrations Surfer dude accent is a must for sharing this book with kids [...]

    9. Dude and Bro are headed to the beach, but Bro continues to settle in to read his book He can t pull himself away from Moby Dick Dude thinks books are boring, and cannot understand the delay It s a celebration of reading and the illustrations show some of the excitement of Moby Dick while the spare text keeps the argument going You ll like how it all turns out, and they do get to the beach, too

    10. SURF S UP is told completely in fun, modern dialogue between Dude and Bro two frog friends whose plans to go to the beach are interrupted when Bro can t put down his book Kwame Alexander s spare text captures the excitement of reading a great book and is paired perfectly with Daniel Miyares colorful illustrations The story and art are a lot of fun, and will appeal to children who often find themselves lost in the adventure of reading.

    11. Cute illustrations but this book is kind of just ok Bro and Dude are two frogs who enjoy different activities Bro loves to read and Dude loves to visit the beach and surf There is a fantasy scene that is fun but otherwise the book is not too exciting I would skip this one Reading level is K 2.

    12. Two surfing frogs will head to the beach soon as one finishes his book The book loving frog shows his friend that books are not boring, they are full of adventure Although frogs are two different colors, will kids keep track of the character changes non reader to reader toward the end

    13. This would make for a great summer read Two friends have two very different ideas of how to spend a day One wants to surf while the other wants to keep reading his book Great for parents, educators and librarians to showcase how amazing of an adventure reading can be

    14. I thought this was a cute book about the power of reading The surfing lingo was a little grating but, the story was cute.

    15. A great back to school read that highlights the power of book talks losing yourself in a good book Dude, every student needs to read this delightful story

    16. I would like to thank North South Books Inc for an arc of this book in exchange for an open and honest review.Two of my kids the ten year old and the six year old helped me review Sur s Up and so the majority of comments and score are based on their feedback.Firstly, we all loved this book My kids are just a bit weird about giving a top score as they feel it will stop the author from writing I don t know why And I m pretty sure that s the only reason this book didn t get the full 5 out of 5 star [...]

    17. Dude is ready to hit the waves, but Bro isn t jumping in just yet because he s immersed in a book This doesn t set well with Dude who defiantly states Books are boring Bro is unfazed Throughout SURF S UP, Bro is an amphibious and much cooler Levar Burton teaching Dude that reading is anything but boring without even trying Kwame Alexander s continues to solidify his reputation as a master storyteller in this book The book is all dialogue between Bro and Dude with no need for a narrator s uncool [...]

    18. SUMMARY The surf is up Dude the frog goes to Bro the frog s house to get him to come surfing But Bro is very involved with reading a book Moby Dick Dude can t believe Bro would rather read a book than go surfing That is until Bro begins telling some of the exciting parts of the book In the end, Bro makes Dude a believer that a good book is something worth taking time out forLUSTRATIONS The illustrations are creative and fun On some pages the illustrations are muddy making it difficult to follow [...]

    19. The imagination that went into creating this wonderful picture book is amazing Two friends on a summer day have different pursuits in mind Dude wants to go surfing, but Bro is thoroughly engrossed in a book Moby Dick to be precise Dude can t understand the interst in a boring book and Bro can t be torn away from it As Dude literally carries Bro off to the beach with his nose still buried in the book, he begins to be curious about this whale of a story Bro keeps calling out Wowie Kazowie and Whoa [...]

    20. This is a fun story about the magic of summer reading Bro and Dude have different ideas about what makes summer fun Dude wants Bro to join him and surf the waves, but Bro is caught up in a good book and wants to finish Bro s enthusiasm for his book draws Dude into the story, and soon he can t wait to find out what happens either The illustrations by Daniel Miyares are the perfect laid back style for a surfer theme There is a slight abstraction that reminds me somewhat of Chris Raschka s early wo [...]

    21. I saw the cover on this and just had to get my hands on it so I got a free copy in exchange for an honest review This is a picture book for even the youngest of readers and it s oh, so cute The title says it all two amphibians want to go surfing, dude The problem is that one would rather do something totally uncool read gasp Now, there aren t many words to this The pictures carry most of the story as it reflects what the frog is reading through flashes, while the writing is mostly short phrases [...]

    22. This was such a cute book, with a great message Dude and Bro are two frogs, and while Dude wants to go surfing, Bro is engrossed in his book so uncool But naturally, as they travel down to the beach, Bro reads out snippets and gets Dude totally immersed in the story too until it ends and Bro won t tell him what happened So spoiler alert Bro goes out surfing, and Dude lays out on the beach reading the book As a librarian, I loved the message that reading is cool that you can enjoy both reading an [...]

    23. This story was cute but not my favorite It is about two little frogs hanging out on the beach One is interested in catching big waves and being adventurous on their beach trip while the other is using the story of a book to live out his adventure.I think it is a great way to show that adventure can mean different things to different people and that you should give both sides a try There are lots of bright colorful illustrations and you easily get sucked into the story just like the young frog li [...]

    24. I received an advanced copy of this book through NetGalley This was a delightful and fun read I would highly recommended this children s book The fast paced and fun dialogue coupled with great illustrations are perfect for introducing children to the wonders of a good book Just open the pages and you re on an adventure with frog friends, Bro and Dude Bro has to find out what happens in Moby Dick, and Dude s just not into reading on a perfect day for surfing, until Bro s imagination draws Dude in [...]

    25. Alexander has created a fun homage to the power of the written word As a young frog seeks his brother s company at the beach, he gets pulled into the book his brother is reading His imagination gets the better of him and they crash, but the youngster s enthusiasm can be felt throughout the book and the older brother gives in at the end wanting to know the whole story of Moby Dick The language of this book makes it a great read a loud and an enthusiastic reinforcement of the power of a good book [...]

    26. This book is perfect for book lovers Anyone who hasn t want to put down a book with enjoy sharing this adorable tale with their children Two frogs are supposed to go surfing, but one frog cannot put his book down The story of a man trying to catch a whale is too good to wait While they make their way to the beach, that frog continues reading, and his comments about the story get the other frog interested in the story So much so that he ends up reading when they get to the beach.The drawings were [...]
