Amphibians and Reptiles (Compare and Contrast Book)
What makes a frog an amphibian but a snake a reptile? Both classes may lay eggs, but they have different skin coverings and breathe in different ways. Pages of fun facts will help kids identify each animal in the class like a pro after reading the fourth book in Arbordale's Compare and Contrast series. Similar to Polar Bears and Penguins and Clouds and Trees, Amphibians and Reptiles uses stunning photographs and simple non-fiction text to get kids thinking about the similarities and differences between these two animal classes.
Children are naturally curious about the world around them. Unique to children's curiosity is the desire to understand "all around" a topic. Designed to kindle learning and logical thinking, this series teaches about similar and different in an applied setting. Understandable text, vibrant photographs, and the helpful "Creative Minds" section with additional information and activities provide children and families the opportunity to learn together. Activities vary between the books, for example: Venn Diagrams, flow charts, matching exercises, hands on experiments, etc. Provides an excellent introduction to taxonomy and natural world for budding scientists!
