The Versatile Reptile
Reptiles aren’t weird or scary – they’re amazingly versatile and pretty cool actually. From having different coloured scales, to sneezing salt out of their nostrils, to squeezing prey with their massive coils, they all have unique qualities. And they live in every kind of place: roaming through the sea, gliding through the sky and moving about on scorching sand. As the repeated refrain says, There’s nothing quite so versatile as the creatures that we call reptile!
Zoologist and acclaimed author Nicola Davies has written a text that is simple yet packed with information, all in rhyme. Accompanied by gorgeous illustrations, this is a lovely picture book that will intrigue young readers keen to learn about the natural world. Children will also enjoy the puzzle about diet at the end.
