Little Skink's Tail

Little Skink's Tail by Janet Halfmann and illustrated by Laurie Allen Klein was sent to me as a review copy by Sylvan Dell Publishing and, boy, are they going to be glad they sent me a free copy!! I immediately hopped on their website and have been telling people about them ever since!! They are so educational - I LOVE the emphasis on science, animals, math, etc. and then, to tie it in, they have great links off of their site to enhance your teaching - I am telling you - you need to go check it out!! Look especially for the "For Creative Minds", "Teaching Activities", and "Learning Links" sections. It's like hitting the jackpot!!

Little Skink's Tail is a really good read. My little 2 year old really likes it and enjoys the skink's imagining having different tails. Plus, it really is a nice little science lesson wrapped up in a fun tale. Also, thanks for stopping by. PJ Librarian

Ok, a silly question, but to they send you the books to review because of the library, or does it have something to do with the blog as well?

I think, Carey - it's a bit of both - I do have that blurb in my sidebar that says I will review books - not sure if that is what did it or not!!
