Time to Shine

TIME TO SHINE is a nonfiction picture book that explores how animals use iridescence to survive and thrive in nature. From the mallard duck’s shining green flying “cap,” to the reed frog’s heat-reflecting “vest,” to the hummingbird’s sequined “costume,” each animal uses its iridescence for a specific purpose.
