Part of About Habitats

by Cathryn Sill
illustrated by John Sill

Studying nature? Going to the beach? Dig into this classroom favorite and beginner’s guide to seashores from the creators of the award-winning About Habitats and About… series.

“Very accessible nonfiction reading for the very young as well as early grade students.” ―Kirkus Reviews

In this addition to the award-winning About Habitats series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children about seashores, their diversity, what kinds of animals and plants live there, and why they’re important.

Noted wildlife illustrator John Sill offers detailed, full-color illustrations to depict the wide variety of seashore topography. A glossary and afterword provide more details. Perfect for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary units on nature, environment, and ecosystems.

The About Habitats series introduces children to specific habitats and their living and nonliving components. Each book in the series provides information about the nature and characteristics of the habitat while the full-page illustrations expand on that information.
