A Strange Place to Call Home – Under the desert’s cracked and barren skin, spadefoot toads are waiting for rain. In the endless black of the deepest caves, blind fish find their way. Even in the frozen hearts of glaciers, ice worms by the billion flourish. In this fascinating look at fourteen animals who defy the odds by thriving in Earth’s most dangerous places, renowned poet Marilyn Singer and celebrated artist Ed Young show that of all the miracles of life, it is life’s persistence that astounds the most.

In this book kids can learn about the different creatures and the strange places they call home. Every part will keep them entertained and will teach them something new and fascinating. We loved reading this book and learning about different places and animals.
