Overview

Chesapeake Bay Walk is an introduction to some of the interesting plants and animals young readers can find in and around the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. With outstanding illustrations and concise text geared for children aged for through nine, the book beckons youngsters and their parents to go out and learn by exploring the estuarine environment, On a stroll through its pages, they can see soft-bellied bullies, birds once hunted for their feathers, crabs older than the dinosaurs, "bald" five-year-olds, and living prehistoric creatures made of water.

Chesapeake Bay Walk guides readers along the Bay's different shoreline habitats: beach, mudflat, pier, marsh, and shallows. It features an easy-to-understand explanation of the food chain, a tour of the changing seasons, and a checklist for youngsters to keep track of their discoveries.

This is the first book of its kind for this audience. The setting is the Chesapeake Bay, the protagonist is the reader, and the main characters are the varied and interesting living things to be found in the region. Unlike existing regional fiction for this age group, which generally use anthropomorphic treatment of wildlife Chesapeake Bay Walk helps children discover that animals and plants are fascinating and worthy for their own uniqueness and interdependence with humans.
