What sixth sense turns a shark into a deadly hunter? Why does snow sometimes turn red? Where does a penguin keep its eggs? And how does a lizard keep its cool in the desert?

Unlock these secrets, and many more, inside this book. From the miniature to the massive, and from the mysterious to the ridiculous - find out how living things from the plant and animal kingdoms cope with everyday life.

Stunning photographs and illustrations reveal a hidden world, in which the plants and creatures with the most ingenious design features succeed.


I read this non-fiction book aloud to my children. 

We loved this book! Each page combines both photographs and illustrations, and the information was presented in such a way that even my 4 year-old could understand and enjoy. The book is also internet-linked, which means that the Usborne website contains tons of kid-friendly links to enhance the book where you can watch videos, download pictures, test your knowledge with quizzes, and much more.

The book features many different species from the animal kingdom, as well as plant life. It was interesting to learn about the various survival techniques that animals can employ including how some animals possess unique abilities to enable them to survive harsh climates, as well as how different animals communicate and their life cycles. I learned as much as my children did!
If you have kids that love science books, I highly recommend this one!


5 stars! We loved it! Highly recommended!!

This book qualifies as:
