Description

Product Description

Red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, pink—animals can be startlingly colorful. Why are they found in so many shades, tints, and hues? From the scarlet ibis to the blue-tongued skink, award-winning author/illustrator Steve Jenkins depicts a whole world of colorful animals in his signature style. Living Color explores a range of animals from old favorites like the pink flamingo to rare and fascinating creatures such as the long-wattled umbrella bird and the ringed caecilian. How do the brilliant feathers, scales,shells, and skin of these animals help them survive? Find out in this strikingly beautiful book how animals use color to warn predators, signal friends, attract a mate, or hide from their enemies.

Review

"The phraseology is immediate and inviting...filled with lively, digestible tidbits...This will easily lure browsers in a range of ages..." The Bulletin 9/2007

Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books

"Jenkins once again astounds...the combination of easy-to-understand language and gorgeous illustrations makes this a prime choice for any young animal enthusiast''s collection."--PW Starred, 7/16/07 Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Another amazing work by a master illustrator." SLJ Starred 10/2007 School Library Journal, Starred

It''s difficult to imagine a science topic better suited to picture-book form than this one, which offers a pageant of the most stunning, vividly hued creatures on the planet. ...From the pink fairy armadillo to the purple deep-sea dragonfish, readers will be fascinated by the panoply of critters that often seem the stuff of fairy lore, and educators will applaud the clever concept of presenting survivaladaptations as a biological fashion show.
Booklist, ALA

Color becomes the organizing factor in this new exploration of the quirks of the animal world. Jenkins’s design, always striking, reaches the heights of inspiration with this offering... guaranteed to be a browser’s delight Kirkus Reviews

The book’s real highlight, though, is Jenkins’s cut-paper collage: his animals are dazzling -- vibrantly colored and detailed. For each of the featured animals, further information -- size, habitat, and diet, among other facts -- is provided in the end matter. There Jenkins also answers questions like “How is animal color created?” That’s a godsend, because it’s definitely the sort of thing curious young readers will ask" Horn Book

"The illustrations are done in Jenkins'' signature medium...richly colored and brilliantly designed. This is a grow-with-me book." Tampa Tribune 11/18/07 Tampa Tribune

"Jenkins blends his trademark collage illustrations with snappy facts." The Washington Post 12/08/07 The Washington Post

"A terrific book for elementary schoolers." Providence Journal 12/11/07 Providence Journal

Full of information on habitats
Reviewed in the United States on March 3, 2013
This book is full of information on habitats. If you need a quick book for your child to read, this is not it.

But, it''s an excellent choice if you are looking for a beautifully illustrated book to read over time.

My 5yr old daughter loves Steve Jenkin books. We have about 6 and have gotten every one the local library has. I love how often in his book he has several levels for learning. I think of these as science books for kids- that kids will love!

A cool natural history book, geared for slightly older kids... Jenkins groups wildly different animals by color -- blue dart frogs along with hyacinth macaws and blue-tailed skinks, etc. -- and explains how each animal uses their distinctive coloring as an adaptive or defensive trait. There''s a lot of tooth-and-claw action here: most of this stuff has to do either with killing prey, avoiding being eaten, or finding a mate. There''s also a lot of text -- each of the dozens of animals being profiled gets a little explanatory paragraph next to their picture. The artwork is beautiful (if you like this book, you might also want to check out Jenkins'' earlier work, "Biggest, Strongest, Fastest") and there''s tons of great zoological information. Just the thing for a budding naturalist to pore over for years to come. (ReadThatAgain!)

Tous les livres qu''il m''a été donné de lire de Steve Jenkins sont de qualité. Le style en papier découpé est très intéressant visuellement et les informations qui les accompagnent sont pertinentes et concises. En ce qui concerne ce livre en particulier, on sait plus au moins tous à quel point les couleurs ont un rôle de communication important chez tous les animaux (y compris les humains), pourtant ce livre m''a fait découvert des espèces qui utilisent les couleurs de manière tout à fait inédites et m''a même donné un background d''informations sur le mécanisme qui leur permettent de se créer leur pigmentation(dernier quart du livre). Pour les amateurs de biologie, de livres au design intéressant, ou tout simplement des animaux, les pages ultra-colorées de Living Color vont vous régaler.
