A noteworthy review of The World of Reptiles from Children's Bookwatch on February 1, 2006
Specifically designed for young readers grades 3 through 8, the informative text is written at a fourth grade proficiency level. Each forty page volume is published with a reinforced library binding for maximum shelf life, is enhanced with impressive full-color photography and illustrations, features a table of contents, information sidebars, detailed maps, a key words and phrases glossary, a comprehensive index, and sources for further research including thematically appropriate websites. Thoroughly ‘kid friendly’, each individual volume is available separately, but school and community library collections are strongly advised to acquire the entire set for the benefit of their young students and patrons.
