What the Sea Left Behind
Ages 4 and up.
The ebb and flow of the tides leave fascinating things for children and adults alike to collect and admire, including sea life, pebbles, and other treasures. Beautiful and detailed paintings by a noted Maine illustrator.
"With musical prose and beautiful illustrations, the author has created an extraordinary book." -- Through the Looking Glass Children’s Book Review
"Carpenter’s illustrations, while anatomically accurate, have the vivacity of fantasy. No dry scientific representation here. The bright colors and amazing detail inspire a closer look underfoot." --Tourist News
