9780064451246: What Lives in a Shell? (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)

What makes a shell like a house?

A house is a home for you, a nest is a home for a bird, and a cave is a home for a bear. But for some animals a shell is a home. Snails and turtles and crabs and clams all have shells that act as their homes and protect them from harm. In this book you'll learn all about these and other crustaceous creatures, for whom a shell is just the right sort of home.

About the Author:

Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld worked as an editor of children's books for over ten years before beginning her career as a writer. She has written two other books for the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series" What Lives in a Shell?, illustrated by Helen K. Davie, and How Mountains Are Made, illustrated by James Graham Hale. Ms Zoehfeld lives in Norwalk, Connecticut.



Helen K. Davie's lovely watercolors have appeared in many children's books, including What Lives in a Shell? by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfield, and Animals in Winter by Henrietta Bancroft and Richard G. Van Gelder. She lives in Templeton, CA.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-The diversity of shelters in the animal world-bird nests, ant tunnels, and the cave of a bear-is contrasted with the nature and function of the self-contained housing of snails, turtles, and some crustaceans and mollusks. The softly toned watercolor illustrations amplify the text and show children in different settings observing various shelled creatures. The transient nature of the hermit crab is described, as is the scallop's shell-snapping mode of mobility. Zoehfeld places less emphasis on scientific names but includes broader coverage than Douglas Florian's Discovering Seashells (Scribners, 1986). She has written an easy-to-read, introductory science title.
