Ann Cooper is a naturalist and teacher-on-the- trail. She writes out of a passion for all things wild. She hopes her books will help spread a little nature-mania and recruit another generation to take care of earth.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4?Alternating storylike narratives with two pages of brief factual paragraphs, this introduction to life in the littoral range does not provide much solid information. For example, the term "carnivore" is used to refer to seals, and although their diet is described, the term is not defined and there is no glossary. When words are defined, nonstandard language is often used, e.g., mammals have "born-alive babies." There is an unevenness in the language throughout (the hermit crab keeps her eggs in her "mobile home" contrasted with a description later of her "too tight exoskeleton"), making a determination of appropriate reading level difficult. Pretty, colorful illustrations appear on every page. However, the endpapers contain confusing dotted line designations of territory required by some of the animals and delineation of such coastal zones as low and high tide, tidal lagoon, rock pools, etc. Yet, the section on the raccoon uses the term "strandline," which is not defined and does not appear on the endpaper. The uneven quality and fictionalization make this a marginal purchase.?Frances E. Millhouser, Chantilly Regional Library, VA
