A House for Hermit Crab Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poor Hermit Crab! He's outgrown his snug little shell, so he finds himself a larger one — and many new friends to decorate and protect his new house. But what will happen when he outgrows this shell, and has to say good-bye to all the sea creatures who have made Hermit Crab's house a home? andlt;BRandgt; Children facing change in their own lives will relate to Hermit Crab's story — and learn a lot about the fascinating world of marine life along the way.

Synopsis:

The author's magnificent collage illustrations invite readers and viewers on a breathtaking underwater tour where brilliantly-colored sea creatures dazzle and delight the eye. His modern day fable is both wise and simple; based on the true habits of the Hermit Crab, it not only introduces young readers to the wonder and beauty of the marine environment but also contains an encouraging message for small children facing the inevitable challenges of growing up.

Synopsis:

This classic Carle title is available again. When Hermit Crab outgrows his shell, he finds a new one, making friends in the process. But when he outgrows this shell as well, how can he leave his beautiful house and all of his friends? Full color.
