Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
How can you tell crocodiles from alligators? Do snakes have ears? What is the fastest lizard? Do sea turtles breathe air? This informative book about snakes, lizards, turtles, alligators, and crocodiles will answer many questions that children have when they learn about reptiles. Over 75 questions are answered in this fascinating book. A young student who loves reptiles will love learning the incredible facts about these creatures. Interesting questions about reptiles are posed, and then a simple and informative answer is given to each of the questions. The pictures on the pages are well-labeled so that the student can identify various types of reptiles. The illustrations give a close-up view of even the very dangerous animals. Words that are more difficult to read are spelled out phonetically to help with correct pronunciation (i.e. chameleons (kuh-MEEL-yuns). The book will also help teachers and parents to answer reptile questions that children may ask. The "Scholastic Question and Answer" series is a good way to teach science concepts to young children. 2001, Scholastic,
