Just For Fun

In the new Pigmoose story, children visiting the Zoo learn about Protective Coloration. Pigmoose overhears and puts his new knowledge to use for our amusement. Learning something new is fun for children, adults, and Pigmooses.

When I finished writing and illustrating this story, I made up a short “game” to explain three different ways Protective Coloration helps animals survive. It’s a simple activity, but interactive and intriguing.

It gives children and their parents or teachers a quick opportunity to figure out answers together. No pressure. Not too much information. A learning moment to be enjoyed just for fun.
