Burt the Beetle wants to find the perfect home to settle down in. But what might that look like for a june beetle? He’s impressed as he checks out the amazing homes his insect friends have built for themselves — the chrysalis of a monarch caterpillar, the underground tunnels of the yellow meadow ants, the wax hive of the bees. Only none of these wonderful homes seem to quite suit Burt’s size, his building skills — or his sticky legs! Burt is starting to get discouraged. But then a rainstorm sends him scurrying for cover under a leaf. And Burt finally begins to understand what home feels like for him!
