Does Anyone Know Where A Hermit Crab Goes?
written & illustrated by Michael Glaser

"The book relates the amusing story of a hermit crab who has outgrown his shell and must find a new home fast. His search leads to a joyful ending as he exclaims (I can't resist quoting!):

Oh look how I fit. I can stand, I can sit.
I can roll, I can crawl, I can creep.
I can seek, I can hide, I can stay deep inside.
I can rest, I can dream, I can sleep!

The author, a marine naturalist and illustrator of the book's witty and colorful pictures, views the story as a wonderful way to introduce young children to the fascinations of the seashore, and indeed it is. In fact, this jaunty rhyme and story about life should be a sure hit with everyone.

The Nature of the Seashore
written and illustrated by Michael Glaser

"...a delightful field-trip guide for the youngest beachcombers or naturalists, and it comes with a field kit that includes magnifier, magnet, and collecting dish. The author asks young readers to use all their senses to "see" the wonders of the seashore - sand, wind, waves, and animal and plant life. Those who complete the simple exercises in this guide will never again view the seashore as only a tanning spa or swimming hole..."
