Gr 1-4–This overview of reptiles provides engaging details. The clearly written text includes brief descriptions of their movement, habitat, physical features, diet, reproduction, and survival techniques. Conservation efforts are also mentioned. Boldface vocabulary terms contain solid, accessible definitions. The soft digital illustrations are stylistic rather than scientifically precise. The text shares interesting facts. For example, the thorny devil has spikes and grooves on its back to collect and deliver dew straight into its mouth, keeping the creature hydrated.
VERDICT Well-organized text and informative details make this title a solid introductory text. Young readers will be inspired to conduct further research.
