Simon and Schuster
Poor Hermit Crab! He's outgrown his snug little shell, so he finds himself a larger one -- and many new friends to decorate and protect his new house. But what will happen when he outgrows this shell, and has to say good-bye to all the sea creatures who have made Hermit Crab's house a home?
Children facing change in their own lives will relate to Hermit Crab's story -- and learn a lot about the fascinating world of marine life along the way.

This book is great for children who are 3-4 years old. The illustrations are bright and beautiful. It helps children to learn the order of the months, for example, "In January Hermit the crab came across some sea anemones". It also shows how the hermit makes new friends on his journey with the creatures he meets in the sea. My little one loved this book. It is a little wordy though and long but very good.

I liked the story because the hermit crab did a lot of hard work and made friends!
