Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Where do animals live and how do they find or build their homes? This is a question many young readers may ponder. Animals live in lots of varied homes. Some they carry with them, others are on the water and some are made in very peculiar places. Spiders weave webs that become their homes. Bats live in caves, foxes live in a den, bees live in a hive and turtles carry their homes wherever they go. Polly Possum is in need of a home. She spends the day asking various animals if there is room for her. Sammy Spider scolds Polly for messing up his web. Robbie Robin shoos her away because the babies are hatching. The bees do not have room in their tiny hive and Polly does not want to swim to a home like the beavers. As Polly makes the rounds young readers will enjoy learning about the different animals and the homes they make and thrive in all year round. Parents and teachers will love the Creative Minds section found in the back of the book. Reader will find interesting facts about animals and their homes. Readers can see Polly’s map, a cool grid and can also learn about diurnal or nocturnal animals. Cheery illustrations and simple structured sentences will engage young readers for hours. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard AGERANGE: Ages 3 to 7.

    This is a cute little story about a possum trying to find a new

    This is a cute little story about a possum trying to find a new home so she can have her babies. The story itself is rather sweet, and children will find themselves worrying about Polly and if she will ever find a home. My kids quite enjoyed the book and asked to read it several times. My 3 year old especially liked it.

    The only thing I don't like about the story is all the alliterative names. It is a rather large pet peeve of mine. Everyone uses alliterative names in children's books and it's gotten to the point that I groan when I see it.

    The illustrations are middle of the road for me, which is weird, because I like the cover. Some of the artwork is pretty good, and some is just okay.
