One summer day, Carol is talking to her great niece Ellie about what Ellie's great grandma used to do as a child. Great Grandma spent summers at the shore. Liking what she hears, Ellie wants to go to the shore, too! Carol and Ellie head to the shore together, and while they're there they discover all the wonderful creatures that live at the shore.
Ellie finds birds– piping plovers, least terns, and American oystercatchers— monarch butterflies, horseshoe crabs, and even a special kind of turtle called a terrapin!
"Ellie's Day at the Shore" is an educational and nostalgic story that celebrates the simple joys of a day at the shore. Alongside splendid illustrations, this is the perfect book for children curious about seaside animals and the beach.
