Mya is an adventurous little girl who loves exploring with her best dog friend Crash. In this fun-filled rhyming story Mya and Crash explore the beach at low-tide and investigate a tidal pool, encounter a sea star, and observe a ghost crab eating a coquina clam. Silly Crash is up to his normal shenanigans by trying to satisfy his appetite by eating everything he can find, including seaweed! A glossary, fun-facts section, and a beach scavenger hunt are also included. Exploring the beach has never been so much fun!
