An Awesome Book about Color and Animals for Kids

WOW!  The book Living Color by Steve Jenkins is really, really awesome!

Kids will love this book especially if they are big animal fans!

Here is a quote about the book taken from the back cover!

"Steve Jenkins 's books have been called stunning, eye-popping, inventive, gorgeous, masterful, extraordinary, playful, irresistible, compelling, engaging, accessible, glorious, and informative! Peek inside this book and you'll immediately understand why!"

WOW, that's a lot of adjectives to describe one book but I have to agree with all of them! There are lots of very interesting facts about some familiar animals and some not so familiar animals.

This book would work great with a study of animals and animal adaptations.

Here's a peek inside!



Also included in the book are awesome orange, yellow, purple, pink, and green animals.

The book is for students ages 7 (grade 3) and older but could be used as a read-aloud with younger students.

A craft activity might be a good follow-up. There are so many amazing animals in the book to choose from.

Here are a few suggestions from earlier posts!

Enjoy reading and crafting in the new year!
