From Robin Kaufman
The copy right on this book is 1961. The pages look yellowed. Pictures are all black & white in this book, except for 4 pages that had a few colored photos. I like color photos & more up to date information. Not impressed with this book & could not find what I was looking for. There was information on types of shells and where to find them, but I still did not think this book was for me. book had over 300 pages.
I took out 2 books from the library about seashells. This book was better than the other book I took out. It had over 170 pages. Book was very easy to read. It did not have any color photographs (I prefer color photographs especially about seashells). This is a great book for children & adults. It also describes birds in the areas where there are seashells. I recommend this book.
