2019 Finalist: Children’s Science Picture Book

A House in the Sky: And Other Uncommon Animal Homes, by Steve Jenkins. (Illustrated by Robbin Gourley.) Charlesbridge, 2018.

From underground dwellings to abandoned coconuts, homes vary greatly across animal species. Still, animals—like humans—find safety, warmth, and family wherever they reside.
