A simple first look at birds that spend most of their lives on or near the ocean. From Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the award-winning About… series.
In this addition to the About… series, award-winning author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what seabirds are, where they live, what they eat, and how they move.
Illustrator John Sill offers detailed watercolor art that shows the characteristics all seabirds share, while offering a closer look at a number of these distinctive birds that spend most of their lives on or near the ocean, lakes, or along the shore—from the Brown Pelican and the King Penguin to the Magnificent Frigatebird and the Blue-footed Booby.
A glossary, afterword, and suggestions for further reading will inspire young readers to learn more.
