Product Description:

Like all of Holling C. Holling's excellent books, readers will learn natural history almost effortlessly through an engaging story of a creature living and exploring its environment, and beautiful, detailed illustrations. Pagoo takes place in an ocean tidepool. Little Pagarus, or Pagoo, is a newly-hatched hermit crab, no larger than a pencil dot. His chances of survival are slim, but he has his instinct, affectionately titled "Old Pal" to guide him through the trials of growing up. Through the book he grows from a soft, translucent feathery being to a real hermit crab with claws and a shell home. Through it all, readers will come to learn about hermit crabs, other tide-pool and shallow ocean-dwellers, how they interact, and which predators little Pagoo needs to watch out for. With its intricate illustrations, personal story, and excellent blend of fact and fictional story, this book, first published in the '50's, surpasses any book on the subject I've seen today! - Jess

Category Description for Around the World with Picture Books:

Introduce children to the fascinating and diverse world in which we live through delightful children’s books. Modeled after the Charlotte Mason philosophy of notebooking, this study focuses on the 4 R’s: reading, reasoning, relating and recording. Skills are age appropriate and gentle to engage and inspire children in the learning process. Geography, cultures, animals, folk tales and fables, music and art, are all covered, as are nature studies, poetry and recipes. Literature rich, the authors also provide additional literature and video resources to go deeper. Volumes are flexible for one semester (4 lessons/week) or one year (2 lessons/week). Beautifully illustrated with vibrant photographs and gorgeous art reproductions for the art studies. Black and white nature drawings are included and reproducible for individual families. Quality art supplies are recommended. Please note that a Japanese notebook, Tsubame, is recommended and sold by Beautiful Feet, but we currently do not offer it. ~ Deanne

Heard on a homeschool mom podcast (Read Aloud Revival, I think) that this book is so good if you live somewhere tropical or where you can tide pool, and we do!
