While Little Skink hunts yummy ants for breakfast, she is suddenly attacked by a crow! But she has a trick to escape – she snaps off her tail, and it keeps on wiggling! Little Skink is happy to be alive, but she misses her bright blue tail. Readers will enjoy pretending with her, trying on tail after tail. The first is too puffy-fluffy, and another too stinky! Then one day Little Skink gets a big surprise…and she doesn’t have to dream of tails anymore. The “For Creative Minds” section has information on tail adaptations and communications and a mix-and-match tail activity.
This individual eBook App will read-aloud in both English and Spanish with manual or auto page advance. Switch language any time and the page text changes and the reading restarts on the same page with your newly selected language.
Little Skink’s Tail is designed to be both a fun-to-read story and a launch pad for discussion and learning. It features a 2-page For Creative Minds educational section in the back. And, through the "More.." button on the navigation bar, you will find a 25-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guide (includes 3 coloring pages available for printing on our website), 3 interactive quizzes (Reading Comprehension, For Creative Minds, & Math Word Problems), and a page of Related Websites (linked with parent gate) for further study.
There is also an optional login feature (on the navbar with parent gate) so that you can view Little Skink’s Tail on your computers (login through our homepage), androids (new App available in March), and other devices). The login also enables eBook access though our free Fun eReader App and consolidation with other Arbordale titles.
