Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book introduces young readers to the different types of coastlines, from sandy beaches to rocky headlands. It looks at what waves are and how they can change the shape of the coastline. It shows how headlands, bays, beaches and natural harbours are formed. It describes the types of wildlife that live along coastlines and the people that live and work there. It also examines how coasts are being eroded and what is being done to protect them. There is a list of 10 fascinating facts at the back of the book and a map showing where the places mentioned in the fact file are. Words in bold in the text can be found in the glossary. A combination of clear diagrams and large photographs help the reader's understanding of the text.
