Description

This beginner's guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of crustaceans.
In this addition to the acclaimed About... series educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what crustaceans are, how they look, how they protect themselves, what they eat, and where they live. With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to the diversity of the crustacean population, from a Sand Fiddler to a California Rock Lobster. An afterword provides further details on the crustaceans to inspire young readers to learn more.
