9780064451246: What Lives in a Shell? (Let's-Read-And-Find-Out Science: Stage 1)

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. This Level 1 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out picture book is a fascinating exploration of the many creatures that make a home in a shell.

Now rebranded with a new cover look, this classic picture book features rich marine vocabulary and beautifully accurate illustrations of the many types of shells—inside and out! Young readers will love exploring the fascinating homes of creatures like hermit crabs, scallops, and turtles. Both text and artwork were expert-reviewed for accuracy.

This is a Level 1 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores introductory concepts perfect for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

Review:

"An attractive, general introduction to the 'what' and 'why' of shells, rather than to 'which is which.'"--Booklist

"Using interesting and accurate illustrations and just the right words, the book first introduces the idea of a home for an animal and then covers shells as the home of snails, turtles, crabs, clams, and oysters."--Science Books and Films
