Special bookmarks will be available. For more information, go to the author's Web site: www.marianneberkes.com.
"Seashells by the Seashore" by Marianne Berkes
Little sea creatures build their shell homes in a wonderful variety of shapes and colors. In this lovely lilting rhyme, children walk the beach, counting, naming, and appreciating forever the Kitten Paws and other beautiful shells, and the creatures that lived in them. The paperback edition contains a tear-out shell identification card to enhance the hands-on lesson in nature's simple wonders.
"Over in the Ocean: In a Coral Reef" by Marianne Berkes
Five baby pufferfish "puff," seven angelfish "graze," and ten seahorses "flutter" about the coral reef in this fun introduction to the denizens of a reef. Set to the rhythm of "Over in the Meadow," this title is also not only a counting book, but also an inspiration to make fishy shapes from clay, because the remarkable, colorful art in this picture book is entirely constructed from clay-like material.
