Summary

Summary

National Audubon Society First Field Guide: Shells makes identifying shells -- and the animals that live in them -- fun for children of all ages. Kids will discover where mollusks live, how they move, and what they eat. Whether children want to know if all mollusks move at a "snail's pace" or how shells are made, they'll find the answers in this fascinating, easy-to-understand volume. Young shell seekers will also find out how to identify fifty common North American shells and over one hundred related species in the book's extensive field guide section. A colorful photograph of each species makes identifying shells from local beaches, lakes, or forests simple and fun.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4 Up-This small field guide serves a need in beach communities and as a vacation-treasure handbook. The first third of the volume covers general information on shells, how to collect them, and how to use this book. Then, 50 shells are introduced in full-color photos, each on a double-page spread, along with a description, a very small range map, and two smaller photos of similar shells with descriptions. The omission of the lucine, a very common clam shell, is a minor drawback. An attractive title to update books on identifying and collecting these popular items.-Nora Jane Natke, Hooked on Books, Hollywood, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
