Crab Moon by Ruth Horowitz

Crab Moon by Ruth Horowitz; Genre: Realistic Fiction Picture Book; Daniel's mom wakes him up in the middle of the night to see the horseshoe crabs spawning on the beach. When he goes back in the morning, he finds one lone crab remaining, stranded, and saves it.

It could be used to teach such writing traits as zooming in on a moment and descriptive language.
