National Georgaphic Reader: Odd Animals


Readers will learn about all sorts of odd animals and see how these “weird” looking features actually help these creatures adapt and thrive in their environments. A leafy sea dragon looks strange, but its leaf-like body is a way to blend in with kelp and seaweed. Did you know a gecko licks its eyes to clean them, and a pangolin rolls into a ball for protection? With stunning photographs, your child will learn key facts and details about these “odd” animals that use their differences to flourish in the sea and on land.
