Books That Aren't Just Books


One thing I've always disliked about buying my daughter books is that once she reads them they get tossed on a bookshelf to collect dust never to be touched again. I try to support her love of reading, but much rather if she borrows books from the library if she's only going to read them once.

These books however aren't "just books". They are books with extra purpose that keep kids coming back to them over and over. From Glow-in-the-dark stickers to necklaces with reptile teeth to figures of how sharks and humans look like on the inside. Each book as a special added bonus that kids can enjoy with or without the books. And the books teach them about things they probably already want to know more about. Things they are probably already learning about in school even so they will fit in perfectly.

From the deadly gaboon viper—with the longest fangs in the world—to the venomous Gila monster that lurks underground, reptiles have an extraordinary assortment of survival skills. Fangs and venom aren’t these cold-blooded creatures’ only weapons: some are camouflaged to hide in plain sight, and others, like the Komodo dragon, have powerful claws for slashing prey.

Creature Files: Dinosaurs
In Creature Files: Dinosaurs, you’ll peer inside the jaws of these fearsome creatures, discovering what they really looked like, where they roamed, and what they ate, using many of the same tools that actual paleontologists do.
