Animals find many kinds of shelter--bears live in caves, birds make nests, and ants tunnel under the ground. Snails and turtles and scallops and other crustaceous creatures don't need to make homes for themselves--nature has provided them with permanent homes. Zoehfeld describes how, for each animal, a shell is also the perfect protection from predators. Full color.

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.About the Author:
