This is book number 24 in the About. . . series.

A simple first look at birds that spend most of their lives on or near the ocean.

In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, award-winning author and educator Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what seabirds are, where they live, what they eat, and how they move.

The striking watercolor paintings by wildlife artist John Sill shows the characteristics all seabirds share, while offering a closer look at a number of these distinctive birds that spend most of their lives on or near the ocean, lakes, or along the shore—from the brown pelican and the king penguin to the magnificent frigatebird and the blue-footed booby. A glossary, afterword, and suggestions for further reading will inspire young readers to learn more.

Perfect for early childhood and elementary science units on birds, marine, and animal life.
