Book Description

June 1, 1983 0911635009 978-0911635003 0
A delightful picture book, with humorous, colorful, cartoon-like illustrations by the author. An easy-to-read rhyming story about a little hermit crab in search of a new shell. A great book to accompany a day at the beach or a seashore vacation, and a wonderful way to encourage young children to think about the changes in their own lives.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"...witty and colorful pictures...a wonderful way to introduce young children to the fascinations of the seashore...this jaunty rhyme and story about life shoul be a sure hit with everyone." -- Cape Cod Life

"A humorous story that charms as well as informs. Perfect for pre-schoolers." -- The Boston Parents' Paper, June 1986

"It should appeal to all young children whether they have seen a hermit crab at the beach or not. The colorful cartoon illustrations by the author are delightful." -- Sea Frontiers, July 1983

"It's time to move now. I think I know how. First I must put my tail in. And now I can slide my whole body inside. I did it!" he said with a grin. "Oh look how I fit! I can stand. I can sit. I can roll, I can crawl, I can creep! I can seek, I can hide. I can stay deep inside. I can rest, I can dream, I can sleep!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Does Anyone Know Where A Hermit Crab Goes November 29, 1999
Format:Paperback
My mother bought this book some time ago to read to my son while he was visiting, and he has since fallen in love with it. The book follows Permit Drab the Hermit Crab as he looks for a new home. His shell has gotten too small for him, and his task is to find one that will be comfortable enough for him to live in. This book is written in a way that people of all ages can enjoy it, and it's especially fun to read to your children.

This is a wonderful book for young children and their parents. It tells the story of one little hermit crab who gets too big for his shell. Your kids will have you reading this one over and over again until they know it by heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginning reader March 21, 2007
By Grandma
Format:Paperback
My six-year old grandson has hermit crabs as pets. He absolutely loved this book. His interest in hermit crabs motivated him to practice his reading skills with this book. He chose it for his first book report in his kindergarten class, and was able to read the whole book to the class (except for stumbling on a couple words), as well as prepare the report.
