About the Author:

Kevin Kurtz has loved books and nature since he was a child. In college and graduate school, he received degrees in English literature and elementary education. Despite his unrelated degrees, one of his first jobs after finishing graduate school was as a research assistant in a marine biology laboratory. Working on a project to study some of the denizens of the salt marsh, he quickly became fascinated with this ever-changing, ever-beautiful habitat. For the last seven years, he has combined all of these experiences as a marine educator and curriculum writer. During this time, he has written and edited the South Carolina Aquarium's award-winning K-8 curriculum, as well as curriculum activities for the World Wildlife Fund, NOAA, and the College of Charleston's COASTeam project. He is currently the newsletter editor for SeaScripts, the newsletter of the South Carolina Marine Educators Association. A Day in the Salt Marsh is his first published children's book. Kevin currently resides in the lowcountry of South Carolina where he spends a lot of time reading and exploring the natural world.

From Booklist:

This attractive picture book looks at the flora and fauna of the salt marsh. On each spread, rhyming verses begin with the time of day and go on to comment on an animal or a plant: "It's two o'clock in the salt marsh. / A fish, small and tiny / swimming all around the grass / with scales so small and shiny. / The marsh is like a nursery / where little fish can hide. / They eat the food that's brought their way / with each new rising tide." The sensitive, precisely rendered artwork, which shows up particularly well from a distance, uses three overlapping scenes on a spread that neatly work together to show the salt marsh as a whole while offering close-ups of details. Appendixes include a matching game and illustrated paragraphs on the importance of salt marshes, the effects of tidal changes on inhabitants, and the cause of the oceans' tides. A welcome addition to science collections, given the dearth of material on this vital ecosystem. Phelan, Carolyn
