An educator favorite for first conversations about seashores and conservation, from Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the award-winning About Habitats and About... series
In this addition to the award-winning About Habitats series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children about seashores, their diversity, what kinds of animals and plants live there, and why they’re important.
With the help of beautifully detailed paintings by noted wildlife illustrator John Sill, the author describes the characteristics of many types of seashores—from the sandy beaches on some shores of the Indian Ocean to the rocky cliffs along parts of the Atlantic Ocean—and shows how various species of animals and plants have adapted to life in these habitats.
An afterword and glossary provide more detailed information about seashores in general and about the flora and fauna featured in the illustrations.
