Rate this:
Shells, nests, mounds, bowers, galleries, dens, lodges, and the creative critters that build them are explored in this fascinating introduction to animal habitats. The featured creature carpenters dig, mold, spin, and weave their homes with an intricacy that will fascinate budding zoologists. Children will learn how these industrious animals can even adjust their homes for temperature and comfort, make escape hatches, and store food for their young. Familiar industrious animals such as beavers, prairie dogs, and spiders are included alongside the more exotic wombats, oven birds, and naked mole rats as memorable examples of animals that adapt to their environments and even renovate them.
