Staff Reviews

Although set farther south on the Atlantic coast, this book on horseshoe crab migration will resonate with beach lovers here on Cape Cod. The text has two levels, easy phrases such as “they’re laying,” “they’re tagging,” and “they’re growing” are headings for more in-depth explanation of  life-cycle, scientific tagging, and development. Gorgeous illustrations show both the horseshoe crabs and the sea birds that migrate every year. The book contains more information in the back, including resources and a map. Don’t skip over the fantastic endpapers, which show a close-up, labeled diagram of a horseshoe crab.

Dual-layered text introduces the life cycle of the horseshoe crab, with a focus on the annual mass-spawning event at Delaware Bay.
