about

Supporting STEM-based learning, this fact-filled book for lizard lovers ages 6–9 is the ultimate guide to reptiles and amphibians from across the globe, entertaining and educating young readers through a combination of close-up images, quirky trivia facts, quiz questions, and fascinating tidbits on everything from turtles to tree frogs.

What is the difference between a reptile and an amphibian? How do chameleons change their colors? How many types of frogs and toads are in the world today? Find out the answers to these questions and more in DKfindout! Reptiles and Amphibians, which features stunning wildlife photography of these animals in their native environments, throughout every stage of their life cycles. Beginning with a broad overview of taxonomy and biology, this book teaches young herpetologists what separates reptiles and amphibians from other branches of the animal kingdom, while in-depth sections on particular species show how animals have adapted to their surroundings with different mating behaviors and defense mechanisms. From chameleons to Komodo dragons, DKfindout! Reptiles and Amphibians captures the breadth of this wriggling, slithering world in a unique and fun way.

The DKfindout! series is one that kids will want to turn to again and again.
