How Animals Build

Discover the ingenious methods that animals use to build their home, both on land and sea. Twelve pages of colourful illustrations and fun facts are combined with flaps to reveal the secrets of the animal architecture that is all around us.


From termite mounds to anemone crabs’ shells, this book is a fun way to teach children about habitats of the world. This book has been created in consultation with wildlife expert Michael Leach, for accurate and little-known facts.
