Canadian Content
"My family and I took this book along on a holiday in Atlantic Canada last summer and found that it was easy to read and full of interesting information."
Julie Macleod, age 13, Kingston Whig-Standard
"You can't go wrong ... with getting At the Seashore for anyone who ever goes near a beach... and schools and libraries should have more that one copy of what also manages to be a reference work in little more than 60 pages."
