Using verse the author introduces children to what happens in tide pools and what types of fascinating creatures live in these seaside environments. You'll find poems (and factual material) about barnacles, shell-less sea slugs, sea urchins, sculpins, mussels, starfish, hermit crabs, anemones, and lobsters.
In addition to humorous poetry, the book offers readers factual information that makes learning fun. The glossary makes this more than just an entertaining picture book.
My friend shared this with her six-year-old daughter who loved the verse and illustrations.
