Published by Heritage House
Sam and Crystal's coastal adventure continues as the brother and sister dive deeper into the marine habitats of Eagle Cove, home of Aunt Kate and Uncle Charlie. In their latest adventure, the kids learn about one of the most ecologically important ecosystems of the west coast: the eelgrass meadow. This rich habitat provides food and shelter to countless marine critters - from tiny micro-organisms to juvenile fish - and is the basis of a gigantic food web that supports herring, salmon, black bears, humpback whales, and many other species. Combining an entertaining story with beautiful illustrations, Explore the Eelgrass Meadow with Sam and Crystal brings the coastline to life for children ages eight and up.
"Dr. Snively captures the wonder and excitement of the rich eelgrass meadow and associated ocean ecosystems. Seen through the eyes of two delightful, curious children, the biological wonders of this habitat are interpreted by a marine biologist, a fisherman uncle, a First Nations Elder, and even a small, wise, and perceptive fish. Beautifully illustrated by artist Karen Gillmore, scientifically accurate, and fun to read, this story of the ocean coast and all its relationships will captivate children and adults alike." - Dr. Nancy Turner, ethnobotanist
