Gr 1-2–Judge’s warmly yet accurately illustrated animal families show a wide range of homes in the wild. Introductory pages for each category of home help contextualize the information; detailed paragraphs on how and why each of the featured species makes their chosen home provides in-depth data without overwhelming readers. Pleasantly readable and offering good word placement on the page, the rich illustrations never distract from the information. Whether the families are small or extended, with one or more parents, the diverse range of animals glows with coziness. A closer look at each of the species mentioned provides budding naturalists with further reading, a glossary, a list of updated sources, and a list of websites to complete the package.
VERDICT A lovely and informative picture book featuring over 20 kinds of animal families and their homes in nature. A must for nonfiction collections everywhere
