Product Description

Review

“An attractive, general introduction to the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of shells, rather than to ‘which is which.’” (Booklist)

“Using interesting and accurate illustrations and just the right words, the book first introduces the idea of a home for an animal and then covers shells as the home of snails, turtles, crabs, clams, and oysters.” (Science Books and Films) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

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.

Great shell book for young children 20 Jan. 2009
By Madi Betz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was great to read to my 5-year-old grandson who lives near the ocean. He has seen lots of shells, now he knows more about them and where they come from - written plain and simple for young kids to understand. He could even read a little of the book himself. Highly recommend this book - I even learned a couple things!

Ocean/Shells 7 July 2007
By Cathy M. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book that takes shell collecting to a greater depth.
As you show a shell collection, use this book to illustrate to the children what used to live in a particular type of shell.

Wonderful book to get before and during a beach vacation 17 Oct. 2007
By Mom of two - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was very facinating for my 4 year old. We took it on our beach vacation and she learned so much since she could see the things she was reading about. She has also wanted to read it since coming home. A wonderful book.
