Animal Skins - Children's Book Review and Giveaway


Book Overview:

Fur, feathers and scales are all animal coverings or skins. Animals use their skin to stay warm and dry, protect themselves or hide or even to warn other animals to stay away. Following Animal Noses, Animal Tails, Animal Eyes, Animal Mouths (NSTA/CBC Outstanding Trade Science Award), and Animal Legs, Mary Holland continues her photographic Animal Anatomy and Adaptations series by the many different ways that animals use and rely on their skin covering adaptations to survive in their habitats.

Written by Mary Holland
32 pg, 8.5 x 10, Ages 5-9, Grades 1-4




My Review:

With realistic photos of what skin look like from a variance of animals, Animal Skins educates young readers on the function of skin and how they benefit different animals.  For instance, readers learn that a young deer (or fawn) have no scent for the first few days after they are born.  Their white spots also help them blend in to the woods and fields so they won't be noticed..  Other animals and critters featured include skunks, birds, porcupines, and more.

The 'For Creative Minds' section in the back of the book further educates and gets children excited to know more about animal skin.  There's a matching game, how animals use their skins, info on special skins, and how animals are classified by their skin covering.

Animal Skins is a Fall 2019 release by Arbordale Publishing.
