With key vocabulary defined on each page and hands-on projects to help children engage the senses and build on what they learn, this series is a fantastic first introduction to the natural world.

Dive in to the secret world of animal camouflage. Learn how some animals use disguises to catch their prey while others use camouflage to avoid being eaten. Discover the great lengths to which some prey animals will go to avoid being attacked, even changing their true shape, color, or nature in order to protect themselves. Along the way, readers will learn about how animals adapt to their environment, and come to appreciate the amazing diversity of the animal kingdom.
