“This illustrated narrative nonfiction series explains the ways in which different animals construct their homes. The entries explore when and how they build, how long it takes, and how the structure functions. The illustrations also provide a glimpse inside these living quarters. The very attractive illustrations, though stylized, are still accurate and recognizable. Martí's pastel palette lends a friendly and inviting feel to the volumes. Every book includes an illustrated range map for the animal in question and instructions for children to build their own version of each home. Aside from the word predator translated as predador–the correct word is depredador– the Spanish translation is correct. VERDICT Highly recommended for its visually engaging approach to animal habitats. ”—Lucia Acosta
