We Build Our Homes: Small Stories of Incredible Animal Architects

We Build Our Homes: Small Stories of Incredible Animal Architects

Laura Knowles  (Author)
It's not only humans who can build incredible structures: around the world, mammals, birds and insects can be found building incredible things. From big beaver dams to tiny caddisfly cases, this beautifully illustrated picture book explores each animal's incredible home and uncovers the reasons why they build.

Featuring 26 creatures from around the world, each amazing animal architect tells its own 'micro story' about its impressive architectural skills in this delightfully unique wildlife book.

Among the amazing builders you'll meet:

Ovenbirds, who carry clumps of mud up into the trees to make their nest
Darwin's bark spiders, who build webs stretching out as far as three buses, end-to-end
Moles, who use their spade-like paws to dig extensive networks of tunnels with nesting spaces and storerooms where they keep earthworms to snack on later
Polar bear mothers, who make their dens under the snow to stay in for five long months, nursing their cubs and eating nothing themselves

Through lyrical text and entrancing edge-to-edge illustrations, admire the spectacular ingenuity of these animal architects.
