Animal Defenses is a non-fiction book for early readers that talks about the different ways in which animals protect and defend themselves.

My youngest children are six-years old (triplets!) and they are obsessed with learning about animals of all kinds. The minute I saw this book, I knew they would love it. The pictures are large and visually appealing, the animal species are varied (cats and turtles, to rhinos and armadillos), the information is educational and succinct, and as it’s designed as an early reader, the information is presented in a way that is easy to understand. I read it with my kids and they absolutely loved it. If you and your children enjoy science/educational books similar to DK’s Eyewitness series, this book is a wonderful choice.
