Bring the ocean and night sky into your classroom with Strong Nation’s A Night at Hideaway Cove Bundle.  We have paired puppets, a board trimmer, and a marine matching game to complement the book’s ocean theme and animal characters. 

A Night at Hideaway Cove not only introduces readers to creatures that call Hideaway Cove their home and their nighttime activities but also explores how the moon affects the tides and intertidal zones.  To provide an Indigenous perspective on the moon and astronomy, we have included four moon posters from Tsimshian artist Bill Helin that represent the seasons, as well as a Coast Salish story on the sun and the moon from Coast Salish author Celestine Aleck and Coast Salish illustrator Cole Good.  The inclusion of these authentic resources offers a wonderful opportunity to incorporate Indigenous knowledge and culture into any seashore ecosystem unit or science lesson!

A Night at Hideaway Cove (Paperback)
Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3;

Come with us, on a mid-August night, to a secluded beach on the Pacific Northwest Coast. There we will meet many creatures that make Hideaway Cove their home. From the black bear to the tiniest beach hopper, we will catch a glimpse of their night-time activities. We will also learn how the moon affects the tides, and explore the intertidal zones. 

A Night at Hideaway Cove is a sequel to Hideaway Cove, another exploration of the Pacific Northwest Coast during the daytime. Written by Brenda Boreham, and illustrated by Laura Timmermans, both books share with us the many interconnections within a healthy marine ecosystem.
"There are many thoughtful and charming details in both the text and illustrations, such as the moon’s movement across the sky in Laura’s illustrations and the subtle introduction of numbers as the narrative progresses. The moon is a large focus of the story—children will learn about how it affects the tides and what this means for beach creatures like raccoons, who are able to forage for an easy meal amongst the heaps of seaweed left along the shoreline as the tide goes out. Four back pages deliver information about the moon, intertidal zones and seashore creatures, making this book useful for ecosystem units and lessons on astronomy. A final page with suggestions on how to respect and protect seashore animals and habitats when exploring coastal areas invites discussions about environmental awareness. A Night at Hideaway Cove is sure to both delight and inform young readers." - Canadian Teacher Magazine, 2019 Winter Issue
