Amazing Lizards! (Hello Reader! Series) Amazing Lizards!

Catchy, rhyming text draws the reader into this informative book. Detailed color illustrations and descriptive language bring to life the many animals in the lizard world, from "plain old lizards, gray and green" to those with "prickly beards" and "frilly collars." There are many surprises! Some lizards with scaly backs look more like dinosaurs. A snake-like lizard lunches on moths and crickets. The Meller's Chameleon has a long, long tongue for zapping flies. Some lively lizards swim, while other lizards cross a river on their legs! The Flying Dragon lizards really do soar through the sky. Three pages of smaller pictures at the back of the book duplicate the larger ones at the front. They identify each lizard and recap the page on which each creature appears. This is a great way to learn about lizards.
