Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Seashore is a lively combination of crisp, clean, photographic close-ups and light-hearted illustrations annotated by David Burnie and organized within two-page chapters in typical DK style. One of the "Eyewitness Explorers" series designed as take-alongs to introduce young readers to nature's niches, it supplements descriptive data with suggestions for observing, experimenting, and creating art. The many chapters offer readers starting points for independent first-hand research, from making sand or tidepool profiles to examining the life on and around wooden pilings.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
DK's "Eyewitness Explorers" series offers a wonderful balance of drawings, photographs, and activities in books that are as easy to tote as they are to read and understand. Burnie's Seashore is a real treasure for kids going to the coast or just curious about shells, sea birds, and marine life.
