about this item

A poetry collection introducing animal architects that build remarkable structures in order to attract a mate and have babies.Many animals build something--a nest, tunnel, or web--in order to pair up, lay eggs, give birth, and otherwise perpetuate their species. Organized based on where creatures live--underground, in the water, on land, or in the air--twelve poems bring fish, insects, reptiles, mammals, and birds to life. Back matter includes more information about each animal."A fine synthesis of poetry and science"— Kirkus Reviews"An inviting introduction to a dozen industrious creatures" — Publishers Weekly"A natural for classroom use, with eye-catching art that will lure little ones in"— Booklist
