At the beach
At the beach Explore & Discover the New Zealand seashore – By Ned Barraud & Gillian Candler
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 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.
Pages introducing sea creatures, sea birds & shells also contain the names in te reo Māori.
