In the second book in the Stuffed Bunny Science Adventure Series, a fluff-brained bunny named Bear gets lost at the beach. He befriends Princess Shelleena, a mermaid doll, who helps him learn about tides and the fascinating creatures who call tide pools their home. But can Bear’s 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 Chicago’s world-renowned Shedd Aquarium.
