At the Beach, by Gillian Candler and Ned Barraud, won the Elsie Locke medal for non-fiction in the 2013 Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa Awards and was a finalist in the 2014 NZ Post Children's Book Awards. It may be just what you need to introduce the youngsters to life on the shore.


Under the Ocean, launched in October, was inspired by children's responses to At the Beach. The book gives young children plenty of opportunity to talk about a variety of marine habitats. They can 'explore' underwater reefs, the sea floor, the open ocean and the deep ocean, along with the animals that live in them.



We highly recommend both books, which will particularly appeal to 4 to 8-year-olds. Now available in both hardback and paperback from good bookshops and from Craig Potton Publishers.
