Have You Ever Seen a Hippo with Sunscreen? is a light-hearted introduction to animal adaptations. Have you ever seen a seal wear nose plugs while swimming? No? That's because seals have muscles that close their noses when underwater.

With read-aloud-friendly text and bold illustrations, young readers will learn surprising facts about animal adaptations such as how animals protect their eyes from the sun, walk in deep snow, breathe underwater and more. The animal board game at the end of the book will provide hours of educational enjoyment.
