Beautiful poetry book based on camouflage creatures written by David L. Harrison and illustrated by Giles Laroche.
This charming and colorful book of 19 poems takes its readers on a journey over land and sea, from the copperhead snake, to the ghost crab, and the Bengal tiger to the screech owl. From flounders folding into the ocean floor and octopuses changing their color, uncover the magical methods these animals use to stay under the radar! The musical lilt of each poem will help children remember the things that they've learned, and inspire a lifelong interest in noticing the world around them! Our world is filled with living creatures in every nook and cranny - we just don't always know they're there!
Eight year olds like more challenging construction sets, and are starting to get seriously interested in science. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. They can also start doing cleverer magic and love doing tricks. And anything they can throw or shoot at someone else is also very popular.
