Whack! Smack! Thump! On a hot sandy beach, two hermit crabs are wrestling. The crabs are fighting over a large empty snail shell. First one crab grabs the shell, then the other pulls it away. The fighters roll over and over in the sand. What's so special about the shell? Each of the crabs wants the shell as its new home! 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 hermit crabs and their seashore habitat, but also develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. Children will investigate, for example, why hermit crabs need to regularly change their shells, and what's about to happen when a group of hermit crabs lines up on the sand. Get ready for a fun and interesting day at the beach! Hermit Crabs 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.
