When we look out at the waves as they come onto the sandy beaches, we cannot easily see that it is a habitat "where plants and animals live." Beneath the waves we can see many different kinds of fish, coral, and other plant life. Many of these creatures have "special adaptations" so they can live in the ocean. For example, fish have fins that help them swim and they have gills so they can "breathe underwater." As we watch a lobster, we can easily see that his claws help him to "grab fish."
Octopuses are able to change color and that helps them to hide from their enemies. They can blend right in with the ocean floor and can't be seen. The giant whales have "blowholes on top of their heads" so they can breathe. Other creatures, such as certain kinds of sea horses "look like seaweed" so they can also hide from their enemies. If you take a look at the picture of the shark in this book, you can easily see that he has "lots of sharp teeth for eating fish."
This book attempts to teach kindergarteners about "adaptations", a word used by evolutionists to suggest that differences in creation that allow an animal or plant to interact well with its environment were evolved over time.
