Learn to identify the myriad of creatures from mice to starlings with whom we often unknowingly share our homes and yards.
School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3-5-- Hester's lively text explores the ways in which animals and plants make themselves at home in the assorted habitats provided in and around human dwellings. Full-color, captioned nature photographs and drawings enhance the discussion, which ranges from bats to bedbugs. Ecological balance and respect are stressed throughout. Double-page topic treatments are headed by totally unrelated animal drawings; these illustrations correspond instead to the field-guide identification game that is appended. There are also a few confusing photographs. Podendorf's Animal Homes (Childrens, 1982), Nussbaum's Animals Build Amazing Homes (Random, 1979), and McClung's Animals That Build Their Homes (National Geographic Society, 1976; o.p.) are related but concentrate on animal rather than human architecture. --Renee Blumenkrantz, Davis Community Library, Bethesda, MD
