Taking a close look at natural animal hiding places is fun with this informative chapter book. The text focuses on such creatures as a dingo, wombat, mole, eel, woodpecker, prairie dog, spider, kangaroo rat, and more. The creatures exist in deserts, oceans, forests, and near the homes of readers. Topics of hiding underground, hiding up high, hiding to catch food, hiding to survive harsh elements, and hiding to protect young are covered with concise, easy-to-understand language that will keep young readers looking ahead to learn more. Detailed, close-up, colorful photos capture creatures in their natural habitats. Readers will come away with a better understanding of how creatures live within their own world. This book is one of the series of "National Geographic Science Chapters" for youngsters. All books in the series work well to supplement science lessons, contain information needed for reports, and are interesting just as a good read. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
