K-Gr 3–Boldly colored and patterned collage captures the escapades of an armadillo as it awakens as the sun goes down and has an adventurous night. Rhyming verse (“Armadillo, armadillo, armadillo run. Romp and play till the night is done”) capture the physical abilities and challenges for armadillos in their environment as well as the fun to be had with a snout as strong as steel and the ability to leap ten times one’s height. Back matter includes a single page of armadillo facts that accompany this engagingly illustrated tribute to the fascinating critter.
VERDICT Especially useful for libraries in parts of the country where there are armadillos, this is an energetically illustrated introduction to a fascinating creature.
