At the Beach: Explore & Discover the New Zealand Seashore illustrated by Ned Barraud and written by Gillian Candler

Published by Potton & Burton

Winner of the Elsie Locke Medal for Non-fiction in the 2013 LIANZA Children’s Book Awards.

Finalist in the 2013 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards.

A delightful introduction to the natural history of the New Zealand seashore. The stage is set with beautiful, factually correct illustrations of three familiar habitats – the sandy beach, rockpools and mudflats. Many of the plants and animals that play a part in these rich ecosystems are shown in situ and readers are directed from there to pages dedicated to detailed coverage of crabs, sea stars, kina & sea anemones, shellfish, seaweeds, sponges & sandhoppers, fish, jellyfish & shrimps, and birds.

Aimed at children 5-8 years old, but with appeal for anyone curious about New Zealand’s natural environment, At the Beach is a must for the home, bach, classroom and library.
