How Animals Build

Author(s): Lonely Planet Kids

Kid's Non-Fiction

This beautifully illustrated hardback explores the incredible world of animal architects. Kids can lift the flaps and open gatefolds to discover amazing animal homes up high, underground, on land and under the sea. From spider webs and rabbit warrens, to bird nests and ant colonies, we reveal the secrets to these extraordinary structures and how they're built.

Do bees need cement mixers to build hives? Do beavers use cranes to construct dams? No, of course not! Like many animals, they're building geniuses who don't need building site tools to create incredible work. Welcome to nature's very own, super-clever world of construction.
