Dive in for a taste of tide pool soup!
When the tide goes out, a briny soup is trapped among the rocks. Playful poems introduce readers to ten salty tide-pool creatures--from a self-satisfied anemone that brags about its home to barnacles that perform a rap about their feeding technique. The poems are brought to life by Mary Peterson's lighthearted illustrations.
A secondary layer of factual text introduces children to the creatures that inhabit North American tide pools.
Mary Peterson is the illustrator of Cat on Wheels (Boyds Mills) and No Time to Nap! (Heyday). She lives in Los Angeles, California.
