I would use this book for kindergarten-3rd grade. This book talks about different animals and were there home is. This book could be introduced when learning about different areas that animals spend their day or places that animals sleep at night. Shelby is a turtle who goes about her day trying to find her home. In the end the wise owl ends up telling him “you have the best home of all, because you can carry it with you.” An activity that can go along with this book for the 2nd-3rd graders is the teacher writes down the names of some animals and the kids draw an animal from the bowl and they write a paragraph about the animals home. This gives a chance for the kids to practice writng skills and learn something new. For the K-1st graders I would tell them to write a sentence in their journal and draw a picture Ex. If I was a bear cub I would live in a cave. Then they would drae a picture of them in a cave. The students could choose which animal from the book they wanted to be. I would also make an example smetence from each over on the board with an image of the animal beside it, so they could know how to write the sentence about which animal they chose.
