The comparison of humans and animals at the beach is a little thin, but this film swiftly jumps from subject to subject, giving a well-rounded view of a beach's ecosystem. Tides, blowing sand, and plant growth all affect the animal life dwelling near the water and nearby dunes, and while the presentation can be dry (literally); there's lots to learn from here. The cinematography is excellent, and footage of all kinds of creatures will be a treat for anyone curious about the seaside beyond fish and chips.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
