Skin That Slimes and Scares by Diane Swanson

Up Close: Skin That Slimes and ScaresSkin That Slimes and Scares, by Diane Swanson, is part of an "Up Close" series of books "that show children how they can link animals by different body parts."  There are very short chapters on armored skin, slimy skin, warning skin, tasty skin, scary skin, and disguising skin.  For each one it shows real photos and illustrations of different animals and explains how the the skin helps each animal.

Anna and I both enjoyed this book and learned a lot from it.  We took our time going through the book and read a chapter a day and did lots of discussing and looking things up on the internet.
