At the Beach product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsAt 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:
    •  crabs
    •  sea stars, kina and sea anemones
    •  shellfish
    •  seaweeds, sponges and sandhoppers
    •  fish, jellyfish & shrimps
    •  birds

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. Comes with a removable, waterproof quick-reference guide to common seashore animals.

I really love this book I think it is a fantastic book for New Zealand children to learn about the coastal environment which a lot of them spend a lot of time at during the summer months. I know our family spend a lot of time at the beach and have found the book really informative.

The book is crammed full of information about New Zealands coastal environment covering shells, shellfish, birdlife, and plants. It comes with a handy reference card which you could take out with you to identify shells names as you find them. Apparently the card is waterproof so that is a really good idea for something that will most likely get taken to the beach.

We went to the beach last week and brought home some shells when we got home we looked at the reference card and found out the names of the shells we had found which was a lot of fun. It would make a great teaching resource in schools and early childhood centres for teachers to aid children to learn about New Zealand beaches.

It is definetly a book we will treasure and look at again and again, I did think it was a bit expensive but it does have good value for money because it has so much learning opportunities in it. A big thumbs up from me

It is the discovery of a lifetime. A discovery of immeasurable value. A discovery men would kill for...
