“Living Color” by Steve Jenkins shows a series of different animals and their colors. Some animals change colors to camouflage themselves, while other animals stay the same color all the time. Each animals is categorized under a color and has a description of themselves. This would be a great book to introduce a science lesson about animals or their colors. ( )

Steve Jenkins uses colors to categorize and give reasons animals have particular colors. Each color gets two to four pages full of facts about why different animals are different colors, for example, the yellow mongoose's yellowish tan fur allows it to blend in with its surroundings. The art is very familiar if you have read other Steve Jenkins books, as he has his own style that is definitely recognizable. He uses different textures, papers, and fabrics to transform his illustrations into lifelike animals. ( )

Description:
This book shows the reader how creatures come in all colors. Their colors most likely help them to survive in some way. Jenkins goes through the colors red, blue, yellow, green, purple, and pink, showing the reader how various creatures' feathers, scales, shells, and skin help them to survive. The back of the book provides additional information on each creature, such as length, habitat, and diet.

Personal reaction:
The best part about this book is its attractive illustrations. Staying true to the title, this book is full of colorful images that give the reader an accurate idea of what each creature looks like. I think the organization of the creatures by color is inviting to young readers and the creatures are diverse. Although I might not use this book for a read-aloud, I would encourage my students to look at the book during independent reading time or to learn more about a specific creature.

Keywords/science topics:
adaptation, predator, prey, reproduction, habitat

A couple of uses:
- Borrow Jenkins' idea of organizing creatures by assigning your students an animal or insect of a specific color and having them complete a study on the creature. Students will need to provide an image of the creature, simple information such as diet, habitat, and geographical location, and then describe how the animal uses its scales, feathers, shells or skin to help it survive. After each student has completed their project, hang the finished pieces up on the wall in the order of the rainbow.
- Use the art in this book to show students how to create their creatures using collage
- Keep in your classroom library for children who are interested in animals. During a unit on adaptations, feature one animal a day from the book, sharing the picture and reading aloud the description. ( )

This book is really cool. I like it for a multitude of reasons, the first being the general lay out. This book is written like my encyclopedia, it has pictures and text to accompany it. The colors organize each animal and the text explains why it was placed there. Another reason I like this book is because it explains a multitude of animals and fun facts I didn't know. It gave myself knowledge and I know my students would be positively influenced by reading this book. It would also give them a different feeling about how colors work in nature.

"Living Color" is an informational book that is all about the colors that certain animals are. The author selects several animals of each color and explains why the animal is that color, what function the colors have for each animal. Some brightly-colored animals are that way for protection- telling others they are dangerous. Other animals are a certain color to blend in with their surroundings, or for warmth. There is usually a reason that an animal is the color that it is. At the back of the book, there is a list of all the animals mentioned that includes its length, habitat, duet, and a fact about them. I don't think I would read this book to a class, but it is one that I would have available for students to read during a unit in life science, such as animal characteristics or defense mechanisms. It would be a good book for students to begin doing research about an animal, or to explore different animals they liked. I would refer students to the back of the book in order to learn a bit more about them. ( )

The deep-sea dragonfish is about the length of a pencil, but the barbel growing from its chin can be as long as a full-grown man is tall.
