A House in the Sky: And Other Uncommon Animal Homes (Hardcover)
Caldecott Honor recipient, Steve Jenkins shines as the author of this amusing and thorough introduction to animal homes. Turtles, birds, fish, beavers, and kangaroos are just like people--they need homes, and take up residence in unusual places. Stylized yet realistic watercolor illustrations prove that nonfiction can be accurate and elegant, and readers of all ages will appreciate this layered narrative. A simple main text introduces similarities between human and animal homes while sidebars detail the unique qualities of each animal and its home.
