A story reading of Eric Carle's classic "A House for Hermit Crab".
Read by Teacher Lisa Dimacs of THE LEARNING HOUSE Preschool, Marikina, Philippines
Hermit Crab has outgrown his first shell, and, as hermit crabs do, he must look for a new house. Nervous and a little frightened, the crab plucks up his courage and finds a shell that's big enough for him. The only problem is that it's very bare. That's where his fellow undersea creatures come in: a sea anemone offers to decorate the outside, a starfish the inside; an industrious sea snail, a fortress-protecting sea urchin, and an illuminating lantern fish move in as well. The heart of the story lies in its positive message that change, however frightening at first, can bring with it wonderful opportunities. - SCHOLASTICS
