Children's LiteratureVibrant color photographs and easy-to-read text offer instant appeal to young readers who are learning about animal homes. This single volume is part of the "Kingfisher Young Knowledge" series and is packed with fascinating facts and presented in a reader-friendly format. Brief chapters offer information about animal homes that can be found in ponds, trees and those carried on backs. Cell homes are strong; some are made of paper that hold honey or baby bees. Some animals live in colonies, some animals live underground and others live in lodges. Beavers line their lodges with dry grasses to keep it warm. Vocabulary words are defined and highlighted with a colorful border at the page bottom. A make-and-do section invites readers to make a simple underwater viewer, build a nest and make a teepee blink from where they can observe wildlife undetected. This is a useful resource for school media centers and home libraries. An index is also included. 2002, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin Co, Ages 8 to 12.
