Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1—This quiet little book introduces some seaside creatures via a simple rhyming text and realistic illustrations. A ruddy turnstone uncovers a sand hopper, a watchful gull hits on the hopper, while a moon snail creates a sand collar to hold her eggs, and so on in a soft litany of beach denizens and their activities. Himmelman's larger-than-life watercolors spread across the facing pages, revealing not only the action described in the text, but also the participants in the next sequence. The book offers a view of "who's there?," as well as a look at what they are doing. A page of further tidbits is appended. A pleasing introduction to the tideline ecology of a sandy shore (conveniently littered with a few stones for that turnstone to turn).—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
