Age Level: 3 – 7
Grade Level: PS – 3
If you like animals, you’ll love this book! It’s nonfiction so it’s completely true. The author decided to compare animals across 9 sets of opposite traits. He compared how a chameleon uses camouflage to a peacock. Then he looked at temperature with gila monsters and penguins. One animal lives in the desert, and the other one in Antarctica. Back matter will tell you a little more about each animal. You’ll have to read for yourself to uncover the rest of the traits, and the animals picked as opposites.
