    Seashells are usually identified by consulting general or regional shell-collecting field guides, and specific scientific books on different taxa of shell-bearing mollusks or "iconographies" (limited text – mainly photographs or other illustrations). (For a few titles on this subject in the US, see the list of books at the foot of this article.). R. Tucker Abbott was one of the twentieth century's most prominent specialists in seashells and wrote more than thirty books - including American Seashells, Seashells of the World, The Shell, and The Kingdom of the Seashell - several of which are still used for reference today. He named five species of seashells and mollusks, and fifteen more species have been named in his honor.

The simple text and detailed photographs will keep students engaged while supporting early emergent readers. This book can also be used to teach students to compare and contrast as well as to connect to prior knowledge to better understand. A visit to any Florida beach can spark curiosity about seashells.

This book heralds the diversity of Florida's seashells and presents them in the way they come to us on beaches. Knowing the names, stories, and varies appearances of seashells.
