Praise

Praise for Beachcombing:

“Naturalist Jim Arnosky offers tips for Beachcombing: Exploring the Seashore, with which young explorers can identify different shells, crabs, jellyfish and other seaside treasures, all warmly illustrated (some life-size) by the author. With an ever-present eye toward respecting and studying nature, Arnosky explains how palm trees form and the fossilization of shark teeth, among other topics related to the ebb and flow of life on the shore.”—Publishers Weekly

“While this is a helpful resource for the very young student, it is also a wonderful book for parents and caregivers to share with youngsters before, or during, a visit to the seashore… The book has a playful tone, reflecting a love of the beach and the illustrations will encourage the beachcomber in readers of all ages.”—Children’s Literature

“Young beachcombers will discover old and new ideas about collecting or just identifying their finds, and the book will appeal to those children who are looking for relaxing fun.”—School Library Journal

“An enticing read before any trip beachward, from a veteran naturalist.”—Kirkus Reviews
