9780064451604: What Color Is Camouflage? (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 2)

What do a fawn and a hermit crab have in common? They both use camouflage to hide from their enemies. A fawn’s spots help it blend in with its dappled surroundings, and a hermit crab might be mistaken for an empty shell. This lyrical introduction to camouflage explains how and why a wide variety of animals use it to go undercover. Readers can also hunt for camouflaged animals in every illustration.

About the Author:

This is Carolyn Otto's third book in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science Series. Her other books include I Can Tell by Touching, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott, and What Color Is Camouflage?, illustrated by Megan Lloyd. Ms. Otto lives in Highland Ranch, CO.

Megan Lloyd has illustrated more than forty books for children, including The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams, Thanksgiving at the Tappletons' by Eileen Spinelli, and The Mixed-Up Rooster by Pamela Duncan Edwards. She lives with her husband on a farm in Pennsylvania, where she raises sheep, chickens, and cows. Some of the rabbits from her vegetable garden have even been kind enough to allow Ms. Lloyd to sketch them as models for this book.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Two welcome additions to a prolific series designed to educate and stimulate young learners. In the first book, Branley explores magnetism and the uses and history of magnets. Several simple experiments allow for hands-on, empirical verification of concepts. The illustrations, the tone of the text, and the device of a helpful mouse add appeal to a subject that may have had a limited audience. The second title, which is complemented by Lloyd's artful renderings, examines camouflage as an animal defense. Each spread shows several creatures blended into their natural environment; all of them are accurately illustrated and clearly identified. The final pages invite readers to take a closer look at the world around them and discover hidden life. These titles are well-designed, written, and illustrated. In both books, the information is relevant and succinct. These beautiful and simple introductions to science will appeal to any child who has ever asked, "Why?"-Christy Norris, Valley Cottage Library, NY
