The brilliant colors actually provide the perfect camouflage among the bright foliage of the tropical rain forest. The toucans can stay safe by hiding in plain sight! Packed with fascinating facts and photos that will test childrens detective skills, this book will engage emergent readers as they learn how toco toucans are adapted for survival. A section of the book highlights other rain-forest birds that are camouflaged to look like the plants in their environment.
