National Science Teachers Association Recommended Title
“To teach adaptations, review colors, and foster curiosity, this book is ideal. Each animal is briefly described and photographed in its habitat. The text is simple yet conveys a multitude of information. Sometimes the color is the focus, and other times the behavior of the animal is the focus. After each color section, a key is provided to assist readers in finding the [geographic range] of the featured animals. This book is sure to intrigue and fascinate young readers and one to which they will return after it is first shared. They will even learn why a brown-throated sloth is found in the "green" animals section!”
