This colourful, attractive information book, neatly packaged in a waterproof bag, will help you get the most out of a trip to the seaside, no matter where you are going or for how long. With pages of facts on all the life to be found between the sea and the land, it’s both informative and inspiring. Readers will learn about everything from sand, pebbles, barnacles and seaweed to crabs, coral and seals. There are suggestions for ways to create are out of what you find, and even a recipe for seaweed. It brings the seashore alive and encourages children not just to study the seashore but to think about taking care of it too. ~ Andrea Reece
