Synopsis

Awesome Chesapeake A Kid's Guide to the Bay by David Owen Bell

Ages 10 to 13 years. The Chesapeake Bay is an amazing body of water -- the largest estuary in North America. This book, the first of its kind, stimulates elementary and middle school children's interest in the bay by exposing them to the fascinating creatures and plants found in and around the bay's 2,500 square miles. Concepts such as watershed, airshed, and food web are explained in concise, understandable terms. This book is an effective means for children to discover the interesting traits of some of the plants, animals, birds, and fish they are likely to find in and around the bay.
