A Day in the Salt Marsh is Kevin’s first children’s book. Written in fun-to-read, rhyming verse and wonderfully illustrated by Consie Powell, the book introduces kids (and adults!) to the plants and animals that inhabit the unusual and important salt marsh ecosystems. Readers can see how the salt marsh changes through the day as the tide ebbs and flows, while learning about the lives of the plants and animals that live there.
Teachers and home school parents can use the book to teach concepts about habitats, animal behaviors, adaptations, estuaries, wetlands and ecosystems.
