This book is a great introduction to the world of beachcombing. It describes the many different types of seashells that are hidden along the coast and within the depths of the deep, blue ocean. It also explains the variety of different tactics that a creature inside a seashell can take in order to increase its chances for survival. Using colorful and engaging illustrations, this book provides a wonderfully thorough depth of information on the lives of the creatures of the sea. This book is a useful teaching tool to introduce kids to the wonders of nature and the intricate web of life that exists beyond the surface of the water. Even adults can learn from this fascinating and informative nonfiction read. This book is perfect for the curious child who is always asking questions. Recommended Katie Korwan, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University, Cedarville, Ohio.
