Book Sharing Monday

I'm late. We were away yesterday morning and the rest of the day was a blur. Here is our book.

Between The Tides by Fran Hodgkins is a great book about all of the interesting animals that live between the tides and how they survive while the tide is low. The illustrations do a great job of displaying how the animal changes for the tides. Austyn found this book very interesting.

"If you lived where the sea was and then wasn't you could...
Hold on tight.

(The periwincle snail clings to rocks and seaweed with a strong, muscular foot. When the tide goes out, it hunkers down to trap water inside its shell. If it gets pulled off, the periwinkle withdraws, closing its shell tight with a special door called an operculum.)"
