Whose Home is This? (PB)

Author(s): Gillian Candler

New Zealand | Non Fiction | Flora & Fauna

Following on from the acclaimed Whose Beak is This? and Whose Feet are These?, author Gillian Candler and illustrator Fraser Williamson turn to looking at homes.
Whose Home is This? includes native birds and sea creatures, such as the yellow-eyed penguin, octopus and crabs. While having fun guessing which native animal lives in the different homes or habitats pictured, young children will learn how animals have different strategies for keeping themselves (and their young) safe. Being encouraged to look closely at the pictures teaches observation skills and children will start to learn more about what makes each animal unique.

Gillian Candler: I love exploring and discovering nature here in New Zealand. The more I observe nature the more interesting things I see, such as a carefully woven grey warbler’s nest or a hermit crab using an old shell. Animal’s homes are so varied, burrows, nests, shells and rock piles. I’m fascinated by the way animals use camouflage or hide their homes. You can read more about my observations when I’m out and about exploring and discovering nature on my blog explorediscovernature.blogspot.co.nz
