Children's Book About lizards

Out of all the reptiles on the planet, lizards have got to be some of the coolest. There are around 9,766 species of the lizard and these reptiles are found in most areas of the world. They have been garden-helpers, keeping the insect population under control, as well as delighting children and adults as an exotic (yet manageable) pet. Let’s take a trip down lizard-lane to learn more about these fascinating reptiles.

Uromastyx aegyptiusLike other reptiles, the lizard is cold-blooded and therefore needs an external heat source to keep it warm. If you visit some of the tropical regions of the world, you can see various lizards warming themselves on the sidewalks or along the walls of buildings.

All About Whales

Children's book About WhalesWhales are awesome. They are some of the biggest mammals on the planet and are a wonder to see when we can catch of glimpse of them in their natural habitat.

Even if you have never seen a whale, you should know that they are not a fish. Fish have scales, breathe oxygen through a set of gills and lay eggs for their young to emerge from. Whales, on the other fin, have to surface to breathe, give birth to their young live and have a rubbery feel to their bodies. They are also warm-blooded and move their tails in an up-down motion to propel themselves through the water.

A Cartoon Illustration of a Boy and a Girl Riding on a Killer WhaleThe whale’s body is extremely streamline, regardless of its size or species and are well-adapted to living in the ocean waters. Whales also have very powerful tails and use them for not only swimming, but also for breaching, spyhopping, lobtailing and logging.

All About Body

Children's Book About he BodyOur bodies are designed for hearing, speaking, movement and reproduction. We can see, think, reason, create, feel pain and pleasure. We really are a wonder of nature and I doubt if we ever really stop and take the time to think about the complexity of it all.

Each part of our body has its own specific purpose – eyes see, ears hear – and when it is all working at its optimal level, life is good. People come in different packages but on the inside we are all the same. Let’s take a look at what is going on in our bodies.

The Anatomical Illustration of the Cardio-vascular System Showing the HeartThe heart is…well, the heart of our body. Without the beating functions of this organ we could not survive. The human heart is only about the size of your fist and has a meat-like appearance. It is found nestled and protected in the middle of the chest between the lungs. It is also divided up into four chambers; left atrium, right atrium, left ventricle and right ventricle.

All About Rocks

Children's Book About RocksEverywhere you look you are bound to see a rock of some kind. We use them in buildings, counters, houses and play with them on the beaches, lakes and ponds. But do we really know anymore than that? Sure we know the earth is basically just one big boulder orbiting around the sun, in line with other big boulders, but there is still so much more to them than meets the eye. Let’s get busy and talk rock.

Calcite Flowers (minerals)As you probably already know, the earth’s crust is made up of over 50 percent rock. In turn these rocks are made up of minerals. In fact, there are 3,000 known minerals on our planet today. Minerals are also made up of elements and we have 92 different ones that can be combined to make a mineral.

Not all minerals are a combo, silver is a pure element, but granite has quartz, feldspar and mica that take form to create this amazing rock. In addition, minerals are arranged in repeating patterns that can produce a crystal – a lot of stuff goes into the making of a simple rock.

Postage Stamp of Harry Houdini - World's Famous MagicianThe most famous magician in history has got to be Harry Houdini. This magic-genius started practicing the art of illusion when he was only nine years-old. His very first trick was his ability to pick up pins with his eyelashes while hanging upside down.

Houdini was hooked on magic and practiced on the trapeze and also worked for free as a locksmith. Once Harry had these skills down he began to build his act. Houdini escaped from many death-traps of his own making, he could hold his breath for three minutes, used both his right and left hands and could untie knots with his feet. He once even escaped from the belly of a whale!
