Ocean beaches capture our attention like few places on Earth-and for good reason. Two vastly different ecosystems merge here, attracting a wide variety of life forms. Become a young oceanographer. Learn all about beaches and the plants and animals found there. East Coast expert Erika Zambello and West Coast naturalist Stephanie Panlasigui present a kids' introduction to beach life. The children's book, ideal for early and middle-grade readers, conveys fascinating information for beginners.

Start by learning about beaches and their various habitats, as well as tips on beach safety, collecting etiquette, and Leave No Trace principles. That's followed by an introduction to the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and an identification guide to common and noteworthy types of shells, plants, and animals--including birds, dolphins, manatees, and more.
