9780865059528: What is an Amphibian? (The Science of Living Things)

The Science of Living Things series helps children understand that they are as connected to trees, rocks, and weather as the animals that live outdoors! This important series helps define the basic concept of life and investigates the incredible world of living things. Each book explores a basic scientific concept or animal using:
-- easy-to-understand text
-- clearly labeled diagrams
-- exciting, full-color photographs

Amphibian means "two lives" since these animals spend the first part of their life underwater and the rest on land. From flying tree frogs to slithering caecilians, kids will be captivated by this "slimy" animal group in What is an Amphibian? Young readers will discover:
-- the amphibian family tree
-- an amphibian's body
-- special skin and senses
-- how they move and what they eat
-- water-versus land-dwelling species
-- their life cycle and parental care
-- defending themselves

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 5: Super skin Some amphibians have skin that secretes, or gives off, a poison. The poison often has a bad taste and smell. If a predator bites into one fo these amphibians, it gets a terrible taste in its mouth and releases the animal.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5-The large, full-color photographs and illustrations that pepper every page of these books will catch the eye of browsers but it is the informative, easy-to-read texts that will hold their interest. Both titles contain basic facts about the animals as a group and identify specific members. They also relate information on the "family trees," bodies, and habitats of these creatures. While there is not enough information for reports on an individual animal, children can use these titles to research these groups of creatures. Dimensions are provided in both English and metric measurements. Although Barry Clarke's Amphibian (1993) and Colin McCarthy's Reptile (1991, both Knopf) are better illustrated, the language and organization of Kalman and Langille's titles will draw even the most reluctant of readers.
