About this book

At the Beach: Explore & Discover the New Zealand Seashore is a delightful introduction to the natural history of the New Zealand seashore. The stage is set with beautiful, factually correct illustrations (including detailed cross-sections) of three familiar habitats – the sandy beach, rockpools and mudflats. Many of the plants and animals that play a part in these rich ecosystems are shown in situ, and readers are directed from there to pages dedicated to detailed coverage of: crabs; sea stars, kina and sea anemones; shellfish; seaweeds, sponges and sandhoppers; fish, jellyfish & shrimps; birds. Aimed at children 5-8 years old, but with appeal for anyone curious about New Zealand's natural environment, At the Beach: Explore & Discover the New Zealand Seashore is a must for the home, bach, classroom and library. Comes with a removable, waterproof quick-reference guide to common seashore animals.
