It's a hot, summer day at the seashore. The beach is covered with hundreds of sunbathers. Every now and again, some of them splash into the water to find a fishy snack. The beach visitors aren't people--they're harbor seals! They have come ashore to rest and to sun themselves. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its primary-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled book gives readers a chance not only to learn all about harbor seals and their seashore habitat, but also develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. Children will investigate, for example, what is hauling out and galumphing, and how a harbor seal catch its food. Get ready for a fun and interesting day at the beach!
