Like all Usborne books, it is beautifully illustrated... another fab offering from Usborne! --Activities 4 Kidz
Written in straightforward prose which will intrigue and inform, the book opens up a wonderful hidden world of animal homes... A book thats sure to cause a flap! --Lancashire Evening Post
An absolutely delightful way to introduce children to a wide variety of animal homes... One of the best non-fiction books for young children that I have ever seen. --Parents in Touch
We absolutely loved this delightful book and would highly recommend it. It is a perfect book for young children with sturdy pages and lots of flaps to lift up. The illustrations are really stunning... This is one of our favourite picture books of the year so far. --Bookbabblers
This book supported the children learning about the world, different animals and their habitats. We love Usborne books as they are always well presented. The flaps are strong and durable. This book raises awareness of the natural world and can also become a great turn-taking activity! --Practical Preschool

This book will engage your child with flaps, peep through holes, beautiful illustrations and simple text. The various flaps are doors, tree top, tree trunks, lily pad, leaves, grass, beehive, berry bush, termite mound etc. We meet horses, hens, tadpoles and frogs, birds, squirrel, rabbits, bees, doormouse, termites, polar bears, beavers, clown fish, hermit crab, tent bats, monkeys and jaguars. There are also second plan animals - they have no description but you can easily engage your child in conversation about them - these are ducks, fox, dragonfly, ants, deer, bear, fish, shark, toucan and snake. We find out where tadpoles live, who may live in a tree hollow, which creature burrows below the ground, what the termite mound is made of, where the polar bear cubs were born, what the beaver uses to make his home and which animal does't build a home and sleep in a different place each night etc. The peep through holes are various shapes, like a round tractor wheel, an oval bird's nest, tree hollow, round flower, beehive, bushes, corals and fish. The colours are really vivid making the book bright and colourful. The illustrator, Simona Dimitri, has a very sweet, cheerful and colourful style, that is bound to enchant children.
There are two to five sentences per page, simple enough to keep my 2-year-old's attention. The information in this book is just a simple description but, together with the illustrations and flaps, it is a good introduction to the topic of animal homes. I think it's suitable for older babies to 6-year-olds, with the lower age range being more interested in flaps and pictures and the older kids absorbing the information as well (my 5-year-old daughter loves reading it as much as the 2-year-old). I like reading it to them myself (found out a couple of things I didn't know ;-)) and it joined my favourites beside "Peep Inside Night-Time" (looking forward to the new release!). Any little one will be delighted to read it, if only for the animal content.
It is a beautifully published board book, the format a bit shorter and slightly broader than A5 size. The cover is thicker than the rest of the pages. The flaps are sturdy and it should survive many returns.
I would whole-heartedly recommend this book. Usborne haven't dissapointed and I'm happy that there are some more coming in this series.
Britain's amazing nature and outdoors.
Much more thought out than other titles with similar themes.
