Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Carefully accurate and colorful illustrations, large print, familiar and unfamiliar animals -- all combine to make this an excellent introduction to camouflage and animal behavior for young children. Tildes turns her story into a guessing game, with clues to identify each animal. Youngsters can find a fawn hidden in the woods, but they will also meet a leafy sea dragon who looks like a plant and a crab spider who changes color to match the flower where he sits. Animals in Camouflage also covers polar bears, horned owls, leaf insects, and tree frogs. The super-large print will encourage new readers to try out their abilities; and a glossary at the back is perfect for more advanced students who want to know more about the various animals or to categorize the different types of camouflage. 2000, Charlesbridge Publishing, Ages 3 to 6, $16.95 and $6.95.
