Here’s a whole new way to categorize animals—by color! Learn why the scarlet ibis is red (from the shells of the crabs it eats), why the hyacinth macaw is blue (for camouflage in the rain forest), and why the three-toed sloth is green (from the algae that grows on its hair).
Covers dozens of familiar and unusual animals from land, sea, and sky. Lovely cut-paper collage illustrations and clever, often humorous text make each page engaging.
Includes information (name and pronunciation, size, habitat, and diet) about the animals in a detailed appendix. By award-winning author and illustrator Steve Jenkins. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 6 and up.
