Animal Homes (Animal Anatomy & Adaptations Series)
The books in this excellent series help children ages 5 to 9 understand how senses, behavior, adaptations, and anatomy relate within animal species. In Animal Homes, children learn that, just like humans, animals use their homes for shelter and to raise their young. Animal homes might be easy to see, or they may be hidden (camouflaged) for protection. Some animals are great builders and other animals borrow homes that other animals have made. Different animals might just use natural places like caves or holes in trees to make a home. And some animals might even carry their home on their back! Sticks, mud, leaves, cotton, and grass are all things that animals might use to build a home. Whether by digging, spinning, building or borrowing, animal homes are as varied as the animals themselves. A fascinating and insightful series from award-winning nature photographer and environmental educator Mary Holland.
