This book takes place at the eye level of a very small child on the beach and is filled with both detailed facts and simple language. It is an excellent choice for curious children who may have wondered about the many types of feet found on all animals. The unique format uses large printing to create a simple rhyming sequence for young children that counts and gives one-word descriptions of all of the types of feet found on the beach. The footnotes under each illustration are in smaller print for older children and adults. They give more specific, scientific information. Animals from tiny snails to large pelicans are included.
