Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
What makes reptiles different from other animals? Read and find out the features that differentiate reptiles from amphibians, fish, insects, birds, and mammals. The text has basic information about reptiles and there are full-page, color illustrations of a variety of reptiles. The pictures have labels identifying the reptiles. The insets provide additional information about some of the animals. There is a glossary; however, the words are not differentiated (e.g. bold print) in the main body of the book. Interesting facts are provided about some unusual reptiles. Just like the other books in the "Amazing Science: Animal Classification" series, there is a section called, "Extreme Reptiles" which is about the largest, smallest, oldest, fastest, and slowest reptiles. Explore the other books in the series to compare and contrast the characteristics used to classify animals. For further reading and research, there is a list of additional resources including the FactHound website. This set would make a good supplement for a unit of study on animals.
