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.

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

Format: This book is a Paper back.

Language: This book is written in English but contains some names of animals and shells in te reo Māori
