Special Story Time - High Tide for Horseshoe Crabs

Lisa Kahn Schnell will be here for a reading of her children's book, High Tide for Horseshoe Crabs.

Every spring, millions of horseshoe crabs crawl to the beaches of Delaware Bay to lay their eggs. There are so many crabs crowding the beach that their shells clack together.

But they aren’t the only ones crowding the beaches for two weeks in spring. Flocks of shorebirds migrating north from South America stop to feed on the horseshoe crab eggs. People also flock to the shore. Scientists and tourists turn out to see the spectacle and learn more about the animals that call this place home for a few weeks.

Dual-layered text introduces the life cycle of the horseshoe crab, while beautiful illustrations from Alan Marks put the reader right on the shoreline to observe this exciting annual event that interconnects species.

The event will take place on Wednesday, June 17th at 9:00 AM. Upon arrival, children will do some coloring while they wait. After the story, they'll be able to complete a horseshoe crab craft! Afterwards, Lisa will remain in the store to sign and personalize copies of the book.

For more information, call 302-226-2665. To enjoy all that is being offered, please arrive promptly by 9:00.
