Go on one of Tony’s “field trips between covers” to a special, brilliant habitat—a tidepool. A whole community of creatures lives there! Humor, a fun rhyme, good science, and brilliant illustrations come together in a clear, easily understood package. Two pages of “Field Notes” and “fun facts” at the back of the book offer intriguing glimpses of these creatures, from snails to sponges.

Anthony Fredericks has produced yet another wonderful children’s book. His vivid descriptions of life in a tidepool are both enticing to young readers as well as accurate. His excellent “Field Notes” further add to the academic value of this very inviting book. I highly recommend it.
