Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This fun- and science-filled work unobtrusively offers three elements that can draw young readers in and keep them going. A trio of children narrates their day at the beach in simple sentences on the wonders to be discovered: "Look what I found! A curly seashell. The inside shines bright, like a pearl." Using sidebars that list items and spreads with factual descriptions, readers are given more information about seashore artifacts and are then invited to spot them in the illustrations. After the children find shells, they come across rocks, crabs, fossils, feathers, and a mermaid's purse, which they learn is a case for shark or skate eggs. After the little treasure seekers return home, readers are given a helpful reminder to take from the beach only what has washed up. Verona's bright, primary-colored, digital images portray lively beach exploration and simplified versions of scientific illustrations of the various things found there. This will be fun for grown-ups to read with children, as they can do the seek-and-find together; it's also a solid addition to classrooms and public libraries."
