A very cute kids' book that's more about friendship and helping others, than houses.

We had "won" a hermit crab and thought the girls would enjoy reading a book about them by this great author. Unfortunately this book is about Marine hermit crabs (didn't know there was such a thing until I Googled it), not land hermit crabs.

If you have pet hermit crabs and want a book about them, this is not it. This crab is working on his home and lives in the ocean.

What a great book to teach children about the life in the ocean and a sense of community. Eric Carle's illustrations are very colorful and detailed. The story starts with a hermit crab getting too big for it's shell and needs to find a new home (shell). The hermit crab finds the right fit but discovers that the new shell is missing things. In the search we learn about different sea creatures like coral, seaweed, and sea urchins. I highly recommend this book for children learning about ocean life as the story teaches a message about friendship and community as well.
