Find Out About Animal Homes

author: Martin Jenkins
illustrator: Jane McGuinness

series name:
Find Out About ...

Some animals make houses out of sticks (storks will return to their large twiggy nests year after year). Others build them out of stones (young caddis flies carry their pebbly homes wherever they go). And some—like edible-nest swiftlets—craft houses out of spit! Many animals have homes, but not all animal homes are the same. From honeybees with neat, precise hives to pack rats with messy nests, from prairie dogs whose underground towns last for decades to orangutans who make a new home every day, the range of dwellings depicted here shows how much animals’ behavior can vary, even in their own homes. Melding a simple narration with more detailed facts on such animals as beavers, spiders, polar bears, termites, and reindeer, this appealing picture book also offers a brief note on animals and their homes in the back matter.

Discover some of the many types of animal homes in this engaging introduction for young children from a conservation biologist.
