Animals in Hiding
The jungle is a wild place that's perfect for animals to hide in. This accessible nonfiction book and it's fiction pair Hide and Seek in the Jungle explore how jungle animals use camouflage to blend in with their surroundings. This important early elementary science topic is explained using age-appropriate text, which is enhanced by full-color photographs on each page. Readers will enjoy learning why crocodiles hide underwater and why tigers have stripes. Creatures that don't use camouflage, such as brightly colored poison dart frogs, are also discussed.
