|Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Fall)
Randomly organized double-page spreads identify different habitats and feature a few representative animals. The photos take center stage, but they give no sense of scale. The captionlike, superficial text is often confusingly placed. Each section focuses on a habitat or type of dwelling (colony, shell). Activity ideas, such as making a nest, are appended. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind.

Organized by habitat or type of dwelling (colony, shell), this book provides snippets of information on the homes of bats, termites, frogs, and other animals. Each busy double-page spread includes cropped close-up photos and a concise text. Ideas for activities, such as making a nest and a hamster playpen, are appended. Ind.
