Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Robertson Mason
Would you find it surprising to know that dragons still exist in Australia? Not the giant, fire-breathing kind, but the small bearded kind. The bearded dragon gets its name from the dark throat pouch that puffs out when the lizard is threatened. It can look so fearsome that even dingoes on the hunt are frightened away. This book, one in the "World of Reptiles" series, is a good introduction to these creatures. It discusses such issues as their life cycle and habitat among other things. Most of the science vocabulary is defined, but some readers may struggle with other words. The large, color photographs will keep them interested, though, and the vocabulary should not stop anyone from purchasing this book. While elementary teachers will love it, remedial reading teachers in middle and high schools will also like it for their low-level students. The language is simple enough for them, but the text not babyish.
