Nonfiction Monday- Looking Closely along the Shore

Looking Closely
Along the Shore,
Frank Serafini,
Kids Can Press, 2008

Look very closely.
What do you see?
A flower?
A fossil?
What could it be?

Each two-page spread has similar questions on the left, with a four-inch circle showing something on black background on the right. No, it's not a hole cut out like the Tana Hoban books. It's printed on the page. This should mean that this book will stand up to wear better than the Hoban books do. Those books keep getting torn around the holes -- as if kids and parents are putting their fingers in the holes to turn the pages.

What's the answer to the riddle?
Turn the page and you see a page and a half picturing a Sand Dollar. The remaining half page contains a short description of it.

And so it goes throughout the book.

Good for curious kids who like to learn more about what can be found along the coastline shore. Available now.
