“From the get-go, this entry in the Spot Backyard Animals series makes excellent use of photos, each of which is in bright, crisp full color. The first page spread alerts readers to a few key things to look out for, with a collage of photos showcasing eyes, tail, skin, and toes. On each subsequent two-page spread, the simply written text refers directly to the photos. “Look at the gecko’s tail. Its tail is as long as its body.” Labels from the opening spread reappear on pages showcasing those body parts, and a final spread rehashes the information and invites little ones to review. This eye-catching volume for the youngest set offers both a tidy introduction to geckos and a lesson in how to read informational texts.”—Sarah Hunter
