A Seaside Alphabet (ABC Our Country)


A Seaside Alphabet (ABC Our Country) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether its a treasure hunt on Jewell Island, Maine, a sunny afternoon on the rocks at Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia, or a dip in the ocean on Prince Edward Island, life by the sea is fun. This gloriously illustrated picture book is a celebration of all things coastal: humpback whales, teeming wildlife, and most of all, people who make their homes by the ocean. Seaside life is shown in twenty-six magnificent illustrations. The alliterative text and the detailed notes at the back make the book as informative as it is beautiful. For those lucky enough to have visited the coast, as well as those who only dream of the sea, this book is a feast for the eyes and for the spirit.

From the Hardcover edition.
