Seashells Treasures from the Northeast Coast
As any visitor to the beach knows, all sorts of treasures can be found if you know how and where to look. This beautifully illustrated pocket guide helps young beachcombers find and identify shells of animals commonly found on northeastern shores. Writing specifically with the Northeast in mind, author and artist Joanne Roach-Evans describes clams, limpets, whelks, mussels, oysters, periwinkles, and more, in gentle prose with just the right amount of scientific information to satisfy the budding explorer. Easy enough for preschoolers to understand, but scientific enough to satisfy a middle-schooler, Seashells will appeal to any beach lover.
