Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
The remarkable world-within-a-world of the tide pool is captured in simple, clear text and breath-taking color photo illustrations in this book, part of the "National Geographic Science Chapters" series. People can explore tide pools on rocky ocean shores at low tide. With a little climbing or wading and some quiet observation, a tide-pooler can discover colorful plants and animals as well as the drama of tide pool life before the waves of high tide hide them from view. This book features where tide pools can be found, ways to explore those mini ocean worlds, and what plants and animals inhabit them as well as how flora and fauna survive in tide pools, be they big and deep or small and shallow. The book does a fine job of relating a real sense of discovery to readers. For instance, those white stone-like things stuck to rocks are really barnacles, shut up tight to keep from drying out. Flower-like sea anemones pull in their tentacles to keep cool and moist until high tide when they "bloom" again. The book includes information on how to write an A+ report, books and web sites for more information, and an index. What a great book to take along on trips of discovery along rocky sea shores!
