Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Summer Whiting
Why, why, why do young readers have so many questions? They have come to the right place! This fantastic question and answer format will address almost forty questions about reptiles and amphibians. Crocodiles, lizards, tortoises, and frogs—-they are all included along with many more amphibious friends! Why do chameleons have long tongues? Can lizards dance? Can snakes live in water? The answers are right here! The index will make it easy for young readers to locate information ranging from hibernation to flying geckos to meat eaters. There is a short quiz found at the back of the book with an answer key. This book would be a fabulous addition to elementary classrooms. It would complement the animal and habitat units in the upper grades. Students would be able to work independently and gather a wealth of information about their chosen reptile. The illustrations help to clarify the information being presented. Those reluctant readers who have an interest in animals will also take a great interest in this book. The information is concise and clear. Reviewer: Summer Whiting
