Summary: This cute fable is about Hermit Crab who has outgrown his shell and is looking for a new one. Along the way, he meets new friends who eventually help him decorate his new home.

Classroom Uses: Storytelling, Read Alouds

Besides showing that we should help out when someone need it and that change can be a good thing; this book also includes information about different sea creatures. This is a great tool to teach children about marine life and their habitats.

Eric Carle's illustrations and stories are great! Highly Recommended!
