A totally unique field guide to cool yet common critters, plants, shells, and more—this portable companion is guaranteed to get kids excited about exploring waterfront life.

This portable, durable guide is a hands-on introduction to cool yet common beach life—from hermit crabs and seagulls to mussels and slipper shells. The book only includes seashells, creatures, and plant life that kids are likely to encounter on a walk on the beach anywhere in the US—Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf Coast, bayside, and/or in inlets. Section openers teach kids how to be keen observers and good collectors. Carefully culled facts make for rich and rewarding beach time. And ideas for excellent activities—from making wind chimes to digging for mussels—are designed to engage.
