Explore and discover the New Zealand seashore with this beautifully illustrated and very accessible book. By Ned Barraud and Gillian Candler. Ages 4+.
A must for home, bach, classroom and library. Comes with a removeable, waterproof quick reference guide to common seashore animals to take to the beach.
Aimed at children aged 5-8, but will also delight younger children with adult guidance.
The stage is set with beautiful, factually correct illustrations (including detailed cross-sections) of three familiar habitats – the sandy beach, rockpools and mudflats. Many of the plants and animals that play a part in these rich ecosystems are shown in situ, and readers are directed from there to pages dedicated to detailed coverage of:
- sea stars, kina and sea anemones
- seaweeds, sponges and sandhoppers
- fish, jellyfish and shrimps
Soft cover, 23 x 21cm / 9 x 8¼ inches, 32 pages. Published by Craig Potton Publishing, 2012.
