Learn about ocean animals and marine life that live in tidepools in this beautifully illustrated, rhyming picture book! Perfect for classrooms and read-aloud storytime for kids 3-5, In One Tidepool is a fun introduction to the wonders of this small habitat.

Did you know that a whole community of creatures lives in a tidepool? (We promise, it's not just starfish!) Dive into their wet and splashy home and explore the world of:
  • Barnacles
  • Hermit crabs
  • Sea snails
  • Sea Anemones
  • And more!

Fun, building rhymes make this a perfect storytime read-aloud:

A knobby sea star slowly slips
Across the pool on feeding trips.
It creeps by limpets, brown and white,
Who tightly cling with all their might,
And watch the crabs with borrowed rooms
Shuffle across seaweed blooms.

Backmatter includes:

  • Descriptions of every animal mentioned in the book
  • Fantastic facts about each sea creature
  • The authors' favorite resources to learn more about ecology
  • The authors' favorite wildlife conservation and animal preservation organizations

About the Author

Anthony D. Fredericks is a veteran nature explorer. He grew up on the beaches of southern California and during summers camped (and swatted mosquitoes) in the Sierra Nevada mountains of eastern California. Later he attended high school and college in Arizona where he often spent his free time trekking through the Sonoran desert. Now Tony explores the hillside in south-central Pennsylvania where he and his wife reside and frequently hikes the mountains of western Colorado where his granddaughter lives. A former classroom teacher and reading specialist, he is Professor of Education at York College. As the author of more than 30 children's books (some about "buggy" things) he is a frequent visitor to schools around the country, where he shares the wonders of nature with a new generation of naturalists.
