A Place to Start a Family: Poems About Creatures that Build

by David L Harrison

Many animals build something—a nest, tunnel, or web—in order to pair up, lay eggs, give birth, and otherwise perpetuate their species. Organized based on where creatures live—underground, in the water, on land, or in the air—twelve poems bring fish, insects, reptiles, mammals, and birds to life.

Giles Laroche’s intricate cut-paper illustrations are so life-like, readers will feel like they’ve stepped right into the homes of some of nature’s best builders.

Back matter includes more information about each animal.SaveSave
