Shelley the Conch Reviews
A fabulous book with wonderful pictures. The students I gave this to have really gotten into learning about the Conch and unusual animal. The product was as described.
this product was cheaper to buy then turks and caicos which is where it's from. Took a while to get here though.
was visiting Turks and Caicos islands. There i paid $17.00. Wish I had known at the time I could get it from Amazon! but a great little book for any one wanting to know about the life of a conch!! nice illustrations, also bought her coral reef coloring book, from AMazon!, for my granddaughter! (and maybe for me too;)Her "Leroy the lobster" book is also good, but it was cheaper in the islands.
