Science Books & Films - Halonna Kelly, The Weinberg Group, Washington, DC

"STAR REVIEW! Camouflage and Mimicry is a great book that describes how animals are able to survive by taking on the appearance of their surroundings. The book is divided into four sections: now you see it now you don’t, hiding out, copycats, and a sneaky ambush. The book introduces the reader to different animals that are not commonly known. “Fierce Facts” provide additional information about the newly introduced animals, thereby expanding the reader’s understanding. Key words that are relevant to the book’s theme, camouflage & mimicry, are emboldened so that they are readily identified while the reader is reading the text and the definition of these key words is included on the next page." - Science Books & Films
