From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3-Species that use camouflage are described and displayed in this inviting book. The reasons why these animals attempt to conceal themselves and the methods they employ, such as disruptive coloration, seasonal changing, and mimicry are covered in the accessible text. Sharp, clear, full-color captioned photographs appear on every page. Children will find them fascinating and will want to look at them again and again. The last page offers some useful description of natural selection. The information is readily available elsewhere, but this book will circulate because of its high-interest, high-quality photos.

Gr. 2-4. Martin describes the ways in which animals disguise themselves to blend with their environments for protection or to help them prey upon others. Although several books on this subject exist, this one excels because of its clear, never condescending text and its wonderfully sharp photographs. Readers will have to look carefully to spot the leaf-tail gecko flattened against a tree trunk or the orchid mantis looking as fragile and harmless as the blossoms that hide it. Many of the pictures are large enough to use with a group, but readers will enjoy perusing the book alone, searching for the hidden insects and animals. Strongly recommended. Sheilamae O'Hara
