Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joan Elste
A very well organized nonfiction book covering a number of reptiles and amphibians, the places they naturally occupy, and interesting facts about each animal. The style is clean and direct and the layouts on every page clearly show closer views of the fascinating traits each one has, along with their behavior patterns. Odd physical features on some of the wide range of creatures in this grouping prompt the reader to explore further—a plus for any classroom. Vivid photographs bring them closer than you'd ever want to meet some of them, and the measuring table at the bottom of each page helps the reader to easily determine relative size. The text is free from embellishment and provides intriguing information filled with interesting facts and behavior patterns that would easily arouse curiosity in readers. This is the perfect book for avid nature lovers and kids anxious to explore the realms of reptiles and amphibians. Part of the "Blue Zoo Guides" series.
