The Tide is a boldly illustrated and wonderfully rhythmical new picture book about the daily changes brought by the tide on the seashore. Children can follow the little fishing boat as it leaves the harbour, and join the cockleman and wildlife as they search for shellfish left behind on the shore by the retreating tide. * Poetically written using rhythm and repetition that is a real pleasure to read aloud. Wonderfully evocative of the sights and sounds of the seaside. * Colourfully illustrated using innovative computer graphics to bring to life the activities on the sea and on the shore. * Engagingly informative. Children will love to learn all about the activities that go on at the seashore every day, by both the people and the animals that live there. * A wonderful gift book for children who live near the seaside or who go there on holiday.
