“A House for Hermit Crab” was written by Eric Carle. In this story, a hermit crab is looking for a house, because when he doesn’t have a house he will be eaten by sea animals! I like this book because there are sea snails, and the picture of the sea snails is interesting and beautiful. I think I should send this book to my friend because this book has beautiful colors and it is a sweet story. I give this book five out of five stars! - Heechan Yang, Tulip Class, February 2018

This is a good book for teaching about the science of growth of a hermit crab and how it must change shells as it grows. Telling the crabs story of how he made his shell/house into a beautiful home for temporary period of time is an effective way of telling children how hermit crabs live, while at the same time introducing other species that live in the ocean and how they offer protection from different dangers that are found in the sea.
