Description

Winner of the Elsie Locke Medal for Non-fiction in the 2013 LIANZA Children’s Book Awards.

Finalist in the 2013 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards.

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:

  • 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 is a must for the home, bach, classroom and library. Comes with a removable, waterproof quick-reference guide to common seashore animals.
