Gr 2-4–A colorful book that explains how animals, such as moths, frogs, caterpillars, and stick insects, hide from predators in plain sight. Each spread features information on how each animal uses its natural surroundings and coloring to avoid being eaten by predators. Text boxes identify specific parts of each animal that help provide camouflage. A table of contents, a glossary, and an index are included. An experiment at the end of the text encourages readers to try to figure out what kind of camouflage works best in their home garden.
VERDICT Recommended for libraries where animal and fact books are popular.
