Gr 3–5—How do animals build their homes? The answer is revealed in its grand and impressive variety through a number of well-illustrated foldout pages and lift-the-flap features that show animal homes above ground, below ground, underwater, and even in human homes and farmyard barns. The colorful images are clearly labeled and the descriptive text will enhance readers' knowledge. For example, the section on animals that dig their homes in the ground shows meerkats, prairie dogs, gopher tortoises, and naked mole rats above ground; when the flap showing an animal is lifted, readers see that animal's burrow underneath. This is followed by a four-page foldout showing the inside of a rabbit warren. The generous volume of detail will help kids understand the author's reference to animals as "building geniuses." VERDICT A delight to browse through and even better for a close-up examination, this book is an excellent choice for nonfiction library collections and for classroom units on animals. It is also a useful mentor text for showing how information can be presented by successfully combining words and illustration.—Myra Zarnowski, City University of New York
