The Shell Book
Rate: 5
This book had awesome descriptions and background histories of most of the shells you can find along the sea shore. The coolest thing was they put the measurement in the bottom for reference if you ever found one. The illustrations were great and made the shells really stand out and you noticed details that the particular shell would have if you ever found one. I really liked this book and would use it if I ever taught a lesson about the ocean and what you can find I them.
