Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS - Gr 2 - Buddy and his mother make a spring trip to the ocean. As they stroll along the sandy beach, the inquisitive cub collects treasures. As he adds each shell to his bucket, his mother tells him its name and shares pertinent details about it. The book concludes with additional shell details and clear directions for crafting an "I Shell Return" bookmark. Mingled with the creative paper-cut illustrations are many crisp, color photographs. Front endpapers show examples of cold-water shells, while back endpapers feature samples of warm-water shells. This book would be a wonderful selection for caregivers to read as preparation for a beach trip. It also integrates well with primary-grade units on marine life.-Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH

Kirkus Reviews
On a trip to the beach, Buddy Bear collects seashells and his Mama teaches him about the animals that made them. Buddy is the perfect curious pupil; young readers will experience the sights, sounds and textures of the beach through his senses. Mama introduces lots of mollusk vocabulary, explaining in easy-to-understand language what each new word means, and linking it to words and concepts that children already know (mantle and skin, bivalve and bicycle). Wallace presents quite a bit of information, and she will keep readers' attention by breaking up the learning with Buddy's numerous snack breaks and clever wordplay jokes. The artwork is a combination of cut-paper and real shells. The curious result keeps the focus on the shells, highlighting each one and making sure none blends into the background. Backmatter presents a few more seashell facts and gives directions in making a bookmark. A stellar introduction to mollusks and the shells they make; an informative, accessible and necessary addition to any seaside library and every school where oceans are studied. (Nonfiction. 5-9)
