24 Hours on the Kiwi Seashore

By Gillian and Darryl Torckler

24 Hours on the Kiwi Seashore is a beautiful visual introduction for kiwi kids to a typical day in the life of the ecosystem of Aotearoa's seashore. Photographs by Darryl Torckler show the action above and in the sea throughout the day in the intertidal zone. The book is divided into six sections, looking at activity on the seashore over a four hour period, beginning at midnight: 00:00-04:00, Low Tide. Gillian Torckler provides a description of each animal, accompanied by its Maori and English name, and also a great fun fact. The variety of species represented is wide, and there is a page devoted to some stunning sea stars (formerly known as starfish) and another to attractive anemones. Seaweek is 6-14 March 2021. You can use this book to introduce you to the variety of life on our country's shores.
