House for Hermit Crab
Eric Carle tells the story of a young hermit crab who is looking for a shell. After he finds one, he decides it is too plain and asks various sea creatures to help him decorate his new home. A great story about change as well as an introduction to various forms of sea life. 28 pgs, sc. Laura
Poor Hermit Crab! He's outgrown his snug little shell, so he finds himself a larger one -- and many new friends to decorate and protect his new house. But what will happen when he outgrows this shell, and has to say good-bye to all the sea creatures who have made Hermit Crab's house a home?
Children facing change in their own lives will relate to Hermit Crab's story -- and learn a lot about the fascinating world of marine life along the way.
