An Invitingly Photographed Beach Trip. The seashore is a fascinating place for many children. There are tide pools to explore, waves to splash in, and so many creatures to discover. This informative book captures the excitement of a trip to the beach and answers many questions children have about the plants, animals, and weather patterns found there. Readers will learn about the forces that create waves and currents, and they'll come face to face with the fish, crabs, birds, and other creatures found at the seashore.<br />Written in coordination with a reading expert, this book is designed for children just beginning to read on their own. Each chapter is only one or two pages long, the text is large, and plenty of illustrations and photographs provide content clues. The book includes a glossary, an index, and instructions for accessing Usborne's Quicklinks Web site, which features seashore-related educational games, quizzes, movies, and information.
