Book Description

Follow a green gecko as it scavenges for food in this entertaining and educational story.

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! Weaving the facts into the story allows teachers and carers to provide answers to all the questions children are bound to have at the end.
