Sterling Children's Books 2017

Now you see them; now you don’t: through beautiful illustrations, including five gorgeous gatefolds, an acclaimed nature writer teaches kids all about camouflage.  Animals know that in order to survive, they must stay hidden—and, fortunately, nature helps them by providing coloration that camouflages them in their habitat. Award-winning author and illustrator Jim Arnosky looks at this most artful and beautiful aspect of animal life, from the dappled spots on a fawn and the leaf-like markings on a Copperhead snake to the white fur of the snowshoe hare in winter and the changing colors of the octopus. Featuring five large gatefolds, this stunning book covers a wide variety of mammals, birds, insects, and sea creatures, and also offers kids advice on becoming better at spying animals out in the wild. --from the publisher
