Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Wrapped In Foil.

For Nonfiction Monday --  "Even an Octopus Needs a Home" by Irene Kelly.
Every animal needs a home, though some are temporary, like a chimpanzee's leafy nest high in a tree, and others, like a coral reef, may last hundreds of years.  Text and attractive illustrations invite young readers to explore some of the more unusual dwellings -- the intricate construction of a Weaver bird's nest, a spider surviving in a bubble, mounds, tunnels, dens, hives and caves, homes in trees, lakes, and oceans. 
She goes on to explain that dwellings may be used for many purposes: temporary places to sleep, safety from predators and the environment, or as places  to raise families.

That cover positively glows, it's very like to capture a child's interest.

Thanks for sharing.
