Did you ever wonder where people got the idea of wearing armor? Or, did you ever look at an armadillo and see it was wearing armor just like the knights of old? Now you can see and compare all kinds of armor. This is a great way to learn how both people and animals use their armors. All the human armor comes from the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Arms & Armor collection. The animals are wearing their own.

A visually stunning, fun book for the entire family!
Both our kids (2 & 4) loved all the pictures of animals and armors! Our older one was especially fascinated to see how people observed and copied nature to create armor and that lead to discussions of other things humans have copied from nature as well. Definitely a great way to explore her surroundings!
Wonderful, thought provoking book for children (and adults!)
Absolutely loved this book! So well done and well written!
Such a wonderful book! It's so interactive and promotes questioning and dialogue with little ones. The artwork is great as well! Highly recommend!!

My 4 year old loves this book! It has been so fun to read it with him, sparking great conversation and really making him think. Highly recommend!
This book is so interesting and beautiful. My whole family enjoys it from my newborn to my 5 year old to even my husband and me. Highly recommend!
Can’t wait to give to my grandson to read when he gets a bit older!!
