Fun and learning come together in North Carolina's Amazing
Coast, an inviting collection of one hundred short,
self-contained features about the flora, fauna, and natural history
of that fascinating place where land meets sea. Each page includes
a full-color illustration and breezy, fact-filled commentary on
coastal wildlife from fifty-foot-long northern right whales to
single-cell plankton, from shy red wolves to overbearingly sociable
sand gnats. Readers will learn about the super-sized fox squirrel,
the acting talents of the hognose snake, the health benefits of
eating pawpaws, the importance of tidal fluctuations, and much
more. North Carolina's Amazing Coast will spark a sense of
wonder and inspire readers to learn more about their natural
heritage and what they can do to preserve it. Used in the "Our
Amazing Coast" elementary curriculum developed by the Center for
Ocean Sciences Education Excellence-Southeast, this book makes an
excellent educational tool, as well as an inspiring gift for
coastal enthusiasts of all ages.
