Armored Animals

From the Series Back Off! Animal Defenses

In Armored Animals, early fluent readers learn about animals such as the armadillo, rhinoceros, and crab that protect themselves against predators with thick skin or protective plating. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text engage young readers as they explore the unique adaptations of these armored animals.

An infographic illustrates a beetle's exoskeleton, and an activity offers kids an opportunity to extend discovery. Children can learn more about armored animals using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Armored Animals also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, a glossary, and an index.

Armored Animals is part of Jump!'s Back Off! Animal Defenses series.
