Bright colourful backgrounds and realistic illustrations make this board book a perfect introduction to New Zealand’s shore and sea for young children. Including shells, sea birds, fish and marine mammals, crabs, star fish and seaweed, children will recognise the many forms of life that live on and around the New Zealand coast. Both English and Maori names are included on each page. An accompanying board book, NZ Plants, brings the board book series to four titles now available for parents wanting to explore New Zealand’s natural world with their children. Dave Gunson’s engaging illustration style is a
proven winner with the very young.
