This book would be the perfect introduction to a rock pool study or a visit to the beach. The layout of the book allows for the students to learn facts about the creatures they will find in a rock pool and then explore the illustration on the previous page to find each one. I can imagine that they would be motivated to find as many of these creatures as they could once they got to the beach.
