A field guide designed to get kids out and exploring the beach!

This unique, simple nature kit gives kids an accessible, engaging introduction to the natural world and the amazing discoveries that can be made from strolling the shoreline. Since the guide focuses on the most common shells, insects, birds, and creatures, kids will feel instantly rewarded when they spot a seagull (or its tracks), dragonfly, or conch shell.

The portable, fully illustrated, flexibound guide includes tips on how to hold a hermit crab, where to dig for mussels, how to make windchimes out of jingle shells, and more. A beautiful treasure box with magnetic closure holds the book and includes compartments for kids’ prized discoveries, such as coral, sea glass, and driftwood. Tucked into two of the compartments—and visible though the die-cut frame on the treasure box’s cover—are a mesh collecting bag for mess-free gathering and a magnifying jar for close-up observing.
