This book follows a curious green gecko as it scavenges for food, facing other predators as it explores the bush. It also includes factual information about green geckos, their behaviour, and their life cycle—a great learning tool for children! The different textures on the illustrations capture the cheeky character of the gecko and the rich life of the native bush. This book is easy to read aloud with great vocabulary and rhythm, and can easily be acted out during story time. It also includes lots of interesting factual information fascinating for children and a useful teacher resource.
