Adaptations—Finding a Fit in the Changing World is full of colorful pictures about how living things are adapted to meet their basic needs in the places they live. Children will be fascinated to learn that some plants have developed chemicals so that animals that share their environment will not eat them. Children will also learn that there are many different types of birds’ beaks, all adapted to meet their need for getting food in different places.

As children turn these pages, they quickly realize that all living things adapt to get what they need. It is this unique ability to adapt that help all living things survive.
