A beehive looks neat from the outside, but have you ever wondered how those busy bees built it? From bird nests to beehives, this illustrated narrative nonfiction series explains how animals use their special skills to make a home that fits their needs. Range maps show where each animal lives and a hands-on activity in each book encourages kids to try the animals' building techniques for themselves. A mama orangutan builds a tree nest in a safe place for her and her baby to sleep on in this illustrated narrative nonfiction book. Includes a range map and a "Build Like an Orangutan" hands-on activity, plus glossary and further resources.
