At The BeachNature, NZ Authors, Picture Books, Reference
At the Beach 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:
- sea stars, kina and sea anemones
- seaweeds, sponges and sandhoppers
- fish, jellyfish & shrimps
Aimed at children from preschoolers up and anyone curious about New Zealand’s natural environment. At the Beach is a must for the home, bach, classroom and library.
