Boing! Boing! Boing! If you disturb a piece of seaweed on the beach, you might get to see dozens of tiny creatures leaping into the air--beach fleas! Peek under a piece of driftwood and you might spot a beach wolf spider waiting for a chance to hunt. And what's that little dip in the sand? It's a cunning trap excavated by a hungry antlion to catch its next meal. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its primary-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled book gives readers a chance not only to learn all about tiny beach creatures and their seashore habitat, but also develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. Children will investigate, for example, how sea slaters help keep beaches clean, and what an antlion does with its prey's body once it has sucked it dry. Get ready for a fun and interesting day at the beach! Beach Fleas and Other Tiny Sand Animals is part of Bearport's A Day at the Beach series.

SLC Review of A Day at the Beach: Animal Life on the Shore

Primary readers will feel like they have spent an exciting day at the beach when they explore the six titles in this colorful, fact-packed series about animal inhabitants at the seashore. Each nonfiction title has a table of contents, index, and Science Words (essentially a mini glossary) section to assist in helpful navigation of information, as well a “Read More” section that directs students to more titles on the subject. A link to online resources provides readers with crossword puzzles and other information, plus a Science Lab quiz that offers readers more opportunities to learn about the topic. The beautifully illustrated text includes well-labeled illustrations and photos that provide lots of solid facts and unusual information, like how “bloodworms actually have metal fangs,” “each barnacle is both male and female,” and “a hermit crab has five pairs of legs.” These titles will spark interest about a trip to the beach while providing the school bound beachcomber with engaging explanations of all things seaside.
