Seashells: More Than a Home
A unique storybook about the many different seashells of the ocean, this book shows that different shells have different purposes, habitats, hunting strategies, and more. The book explains why shells are more than just the dwelling place of creatures called mollusks. In addition to the simple storyline, each one to two-page spread includes a different mollusk with an informational paragraph which differentiates that seashell from the others.
