Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
What can be more appealing than baby animals? Add to that the fact that these particular babies live on or near the seashore and young readers will find a winning combination in this book, part of the "Nature's Baby Animals" series. The diversity of seashore life is remarkable. According to the book, infant animals develop a variety of ways to survive in this salty, sandy world. Interestingly, the book begins with special words to know: blubber, hatchling (born from an egg), and larva (the early stages of some animals' lives). With these in mind, the book includes reptiles, marine mammals and birds. Harbor seal pups can swim right after birth, while infant walruses (calves) have thick blubber but sometimes ride on their mothers' backs in cold water. Infant horseshoe crabs start out life as larva. Saltwater crocodile babies tap their way out of eggs, as well as herring gulls, that depend on their parents to provide food. Further, Penguin chicks sit on their parents' feet and rest against feathers to keep warm. Sea turtle hatchlings also work their ways out of eggs, but these eggs are buried so the babies must dig their way out and then rush to the water so they can hide in seaweed. The book's photo illustrations are appealing to any age, while its size accommodate young hands well. The book includes a list of books and websites plus an index. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
