Introduce young naturalists to the mysterious high tide of the horseshoe crabs.
One June night, under the full moon, Daniel's mother wakes him up to see the extraordinary sight of horseshoe crabs spawning on the beach-just as they have every spring for 350 million years. In the morning, Daniel returns to find one lone crab, marooned upside down in the sand. Is it dead? Can he save it? Like a perfect weekend at the beach, CRAB MOON leaves an indelible memory of a special adventure between a parent and a child. And with luminous paintings by Kate Kiesler, it relays a powerful message that each of us must do our part to preserve even earth's oldest creatures.
