Geckos is a new entry in the "Reptile World" series. The book opens with the most memorable fact about a gecko - when it loses its tail, it grows back! Further facts are included; the sounds a gecko makes, its sticky toes, and reproduction. Back matter has a labeled photograph of a gecko (Parts of a Gecko), picture glossary, and index.
These are perfect for younger kids who like nonfiction titles and for beginning readers wanting to read on their own. The photographs are bright and attractive, the text simple but informative.
Verdict: These show the best of what Bullfrog offers; accessible, sturdy, and easy books for young children and beginning readers to devour on popular topics. I strongly recommend both series.
