Why do flower petals so often grow in a circle?
Why are toucans' beaks so brilliantly colored?
With a simple text and bright, jewel-like illustrations, Susan Stockdale explores the myriad ways in which patterns and colors are helpful to living things. They provide camouflage, of course, but that's only the beginning....
A pinwheel of flower petals draws bees to a flower's center where they can collect sweet nectar and drop off pollen. And a toucan waves its colorful beak like a flag to attract a mate.
Clever and eye-opening, Nature's Paintbrush will encourage youngsters to examine, think about, and enjoy the colorful world around them.
