You Can’t Build a House If You’re a Hippo

You Can’t Build a House If You’re a Hippo

A Book About All Kinds of Houses

by Fred Ehrlich

This entry in the series explores the science, geography, and physiology that determines how, where, and in what various creatures live. It begins with animals whose body creates their home (shell-dwellers, spiders), then features those who use nests, burrows/dens/holes. Next come homes that humans build and live in. Humorous verse is paired with kid-centered explanations and explorations of building basics, different types of homes (igloos, apartments, cabins, suburban-style, etc.), and homes of the future. Each section is topped off with a page of simple activities and kickstarting questions that expand the child's understanding of that particular section's, and the overall, subject matter.
