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.

Editorial Reviews

The illustrator, Charlotte Ingram, has a simple yet descriptive style of capturing the essence of each entry. . . . Ingram's style is well used here as this book is not designed to be used for strict identification, but as a springboard for further inquiry. This fun book is a great addition to the library of a budding naturalist or a seasoned scientist whether they live along the coast or like to visit North Carolina. - Rhana Paris - The Naturalist
