Where to buy it


A fun way to learn about those sea creatures swimming in the tidal pools.The stories in this book are fun. They are delightful to read or to listen to. Any child from the age of five to ten years, or for that matter anyone who is young in heart, will enjoy them. But fun and enjoyment is only part of the value of this book. The book is filled with interesting facts about sea creatures. It was written with the hope that reading it would teach children to appreciate them for their unique qualities and to respect the small pools in which they live. After reading this book a trip to the beach will be doubly interesting and meaningful to young readers.
