Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-6. From the First Book series on ecosystems, this colorfully illustrated book describes tide pools. After discussing what tide pools are, how they form, and what makes their environment unique, the book focuses on the plant and animal life found there: algae, protozoans, mollusks, crustaceans, sea stars, sea cucumbers, and sea squirts. Each species has its own adaptations that make its survival possible in tide pools with rapidly changing salt and oxygen levels as well as temperatures. A lengthy glossary and brief lists of books, videos, CD-ROMs, and Web sites are appended. Illustrated with many full-color photographs, this book presents basic information in an accessible format. --Carolyn Phelan
