Two interactive books included in the optional Reptiles, Amphibians, and Fish Read-Aloud Book Pack expand learning and provide a fun, engaging addition to your science studies.

As the “biggest rattler on the mountainside,” Buzztail has seen it all. As you follow along with his adventures and challenges, you will learn about the life cycle of a rattlesnake and meet many other animals and plants that share his ecosystem. This entertaining, yet informative, story will leave you with a deeper knowledge and appreciation of these scaly, slithering creatures. (58 pages, 5.5”x8.5”)

From frogs with big eyes to salamanders that don’t use their eyes at all, from turtles that lure prey right into their mouths to lizards that snatch up insects with suction-cup tongues, there is so much variety to be found among reptiles and amphibians. Packed with vibrant full-color photos that are both entertaining and informational, Curious Reptiles and Amphibians explores fun facts about many of God’s most fascinating creatures. (59 pages, 11”x8.5”)

These books are all published by The Good and the Beautiful Library and are designed to appeal to children in grades K–8. Lessons will prompt students when to read these optional books, but they are not integrated with the lessons.
