About this Book:

As any visitor to the beach knows, all sorts of treasures can be found if you know how and where to look. This beautifully illustrated pocket guide helps young beachcombers find, and identify, shells of animals commonly found on Northeast shores. Writing specifically with the Northeast in mind, author and artist Joanne Roach-Evans describes clams, limpets, whelks, mussels, oysters, periwinkles, and more, in gentle prose with just the right amount of scientific information to satisfy the budding explorer. Easy enough for pre-schoolers to understand, but scientific enough to satisfy a middle-schooler, Seashells will appeal to any beach lover! 


"If you live New England or are planning a vacation along this beautiful coastline, this is a must-have book for your little one. There are so many different beautiful treasures to be found along our beaches. This book is the perfect guide to prepare you for what you'll find and help identify the treasures you've collected. The illustrations are beautiful with colors and textures that are true to life."
––Melissa Marquis, Children's Book Review (Instagram, @childrens_book_review) 

"Perfectly sized to fit in your beach bag, this is the book to have on hand the next time you're combing the shoreline."
The Talking Walnut

"Seashells – Treasures From the Northeast Coast is a sweet non-fiction book that is the perfect size for little hands. This storybook could easily be included in a Montessori style hands-on learning adventure with either actual shells or picture cards. Children could also work with their teacher to create the shells out of modeling clay to really reinforce their learning.”
––The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
