Reptiles (Smithsonian Kids All Star Readers Level 2)
Did you know there are more than 8,000 types of reptiles in the world? Can you guess which one is the biggest? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this fact-filled paperback leveled reader that's all about reptiles!
Developed in collaboration with the Smithsonian and esteemed literary childhood expert Dr. Adria Klein, Smithsonian Kids All-Star Readers: Reptiles Level 2 is designed to encourage reading comprehension while introducing reptiles living around the world. Children will learn about many reptiles—everything from iguanas to tortoises—while building reading skills with the carefully designed leveling structure and glossary. After reading this introduction to nonfiction, children can use the included quiz to reinforce reading comprehension.
Now this is the way I would like to practice my reading. These leveled readers are actually six separate books (each about 30 pgs long) combined into one volume. Several things set them apart. The content is all non-fiction, interesting and in-depth information from real world categories like outer space, insects, safari animals, and world wonders. Each section (i.e. book within the book) provides detailed information, glorious pictures, and intriguing content such as the food chain segment in the predators section of the Level 4 Endless Explorations book or the section on baby reptiles in the Level 1 Early Adventures book. But that's not all! There is a glossary and quiz at the end of each of these sections along with a set of six info cards that are perforated for easy removal (36 cards per book). Books have around 200 pages, and all are hc except for Level 3 which is pb. ~ Janice
