Overview

In this stunning pop-up book, meet seven animal builders and see how their unique skills help them survive—and to live together in harmony in the neighborwood.

At the edge of the forest a spider spins her web, while nearby, a hummingbird uses strands of spider silk to build her nest. These are just two of the many animals who live side by side, sharing the resources they need to construct homes, traps, or places to store food. From award-winning artist Shawn Sheehy comes an up-close look at the architectural masterpieces of the animal world, featuring an array of beautiful, lifelike pop-ups originally crafted with handmade paper. The earthy exploration culminates in a breathtaking final spread showing all the neighborwood creatures together.

If you like to build and nature, then this book is for you. Kids will like everything about this book, especially the pictures. I like the part about the beaver best. Boys will love the spider. Girls will like this book too—even though there is no pink, there is lavender. The ending is excellent. It is like no other book I know Reviewed by Henry L., age 5, North Texas Mensa
