Snowshoe Hare

From the Series Arctic Animals: Life Outside the Igloo

In a snowy forest, a small animal with pure white fur is munching on evergreen branches. It is a snowshoe hare. When it's time to move on, the hare hops over the forest floor with ease. Its huge feet act like snowshoes and keep it from sinking in as it moves along the snow-covered ground. Its white coat helps it blend in with its snowy habitat, keeping it safe from predators. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its primary-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume gives readers a chance not only to learn all about snowshoe hares and how their bodies are adapted to the extreme cold, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. Built-in activities, such as guessing how a snowshoe hare stays camouflaged when the snow melts in spring and finding objects that weigh the same amount as a baby hare, give readers a chance to gain, insights beyond the facts and figures.
