From the intricate paper–like constructions of termites to the serendipitous shelters found and inhabited by sea creatures, homes provide the keys to survival for many species. The ability to find an appropriate home or breeding area is essential for a species. This NSTA/CBC Award Winning book uses the theme of shelter to illustrate behavioral and physical adaptations in a variety of animals.

The large drawings on each page are visually rich with detail to encourage careful observation. There are great connections to other kinds of information and to details about each animal's habitat. This book is great for sharing with a group, browsing as an individual elementary reader, or for inspiring individual or group research projects about the homes of animals in the areas where students live.
