ARLINGTON, Va.--(Next Time You See a Seashell tells the amazing story behind seashells: how they are made by mollusks, used for protection and camouflage, and full of clues about their life history. Young readers will find these intricate objects even more fascinating when they discover these shells are made by slimy, snaily mollusks. Flush with beautiful photographs in a large, glossy format, this book from the Next Time You See series is intended for elementary-age children (grades K–6) who will surely be inspired by the everyday phenomena they will see in these pages. Free supplementary activities are available on the NSTA website.)--
