High? Low? Where Did It Go? All About Animal Camouflage

Author Tish Rabe
Illustrated by Aristides Ruiz
Look inside
The Cat looks at animals that are not easy to see!
 
The Cat in the Hat introduces young readers to the concept of camouflage—a type of adaptation that helps animals survive. Children will learn how some animals change color to blend in with their surroundings, how some disguise themselves by matching the shape or texture of their environment, and how others use their coloring to make it hard for predators to see the outlines of their bodies. Examples include well-known animals like zebras, crocodiles, polar bears, and penguins, as well as lesser-known ones like tailor ants, decorator crabs, stick insects, and more! Ideal for supporting the Common Core State Standards, and a natural for fans of the hit PBS Kids show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, this is a great way to introduce beginning readers to science and nonfiction!
