Here's the perfect companion for having fun at the seashore: a book packed with great ideas for things to do, games to play, crafts and discovery--all at the ocean's edge.
Have you wondered where jellyfish or shore crabs come from? Looked for the names of different seaweeds or shells? Are you interested in learning how you can adopt a killer whale? You can learn about the natural world, about plankton, fossils, bird and animal tracks in the sand, and at the same time discover how you can help care for the natural environment.
At the Seashore is a lively and brightly illustrated guide to learning and enjoying the nature of the summer coastline.

"This well-organized book offers both residents and summer visitors information and activities that will enrich and add enjoyment to seaside adventures.
DeCoste...contributes an abundance of watercolor illustrations that are both lovely and scientifically accurate.
This inspired and comprehensive craft book cum nature guide would make a fine addition to home, school, and public-library collections... highly recommended."

- Judy Davies Canadian Book Review Annual

"Hickman does a superb job introducing the fascinating world of the seashore to children of all ages... concisely written in a language that is easy to understand... enhanced with charts, illustrations, sidebars, checklists, and a variety of fun activities.
The full-colour illustrations by Twila Robar DeCoste greatly aid children in the identification of plants and animals. Her background as a biologist and scientific illustrator is evident in her detailed and highly realistic drawings. This feature provides the finishing touches to an already strong guide. At the Seashore is recommended as a fun-filled entertainment tool for personal or educational use. As a seaside reference book, it is ideal. Its size makes it easy to pack along and it is both informative and well-presented.

- Jo-Anne Benson Nature Canada

"These two new volumes, by an award-winning author of 16 science-related books for children, are designed to help kids explore and observe the many interesting forms of marine life found on the east and west coasts of North Ameirca. They offer a variety of ways to have fun while learning."

- Canadian Content

"My family and I took this book along on a holiday in Atlantic Canada last summer and found that it was easy to read and full of interesting information."

- Julie Macleod, age 13 Kingston Whig-Standard

"You can't go wrong ... with getting At the Seashore for anyone who ever goes near a beach... and schools and libraries should have more that one copy of what also manages to be a reference work in little more than 60 pages."

- E.E. Cran Telegraph-Journal

"...this is a good book to toss in a knapsack when heading out to the cottage..."

- Jennifer McGrath-Kent Canadian Children's Literature

"...an entertaining, colourful, and informative nature activity book. Hickman's text is clear and readable, and she presents a nice balance of factual information and crafts, recipes, and activities. The illustrations do a fine job of showing readers what to look for, and help demonstrate the various activities or crafts... the design is clean, attractive, and inviting, and a useful index helps in quickly locating information."

- Fred Boer Quill & Quire

"[At the Seashore shows a real understanding of what kids like to do and think about when they finally break free of malls and vans and get to mess around at the beach."

- Judy Millar Explore
