The Toy and the Tide Pool

By Gillian King-Cargile

Illustrations by Kevin Krull

In the second book in the series, Bear gets lost at the beach and befriends Princess Shelleena, a mermaid doll. He learns about tides and the fascinating creatures who call tide pools their home. But can Bearís new friend help him find a way to signal for help before the high tide sweeps him out to sea? This silly, salty adventure introduces young readers to interesting ocean animals and helps them understand concepts of biodiversity and earth system science. It concludes with an interview with a marine biologist from Chicagoís world-renowned Shedd Aquarium.
