Ready, set, go! Did you ever wonder which animals are the fastest… and the slowest?

All amphibians can move! But how do these animals actually go from place to place? Frogs can use their powerful legs to jump. Toads usually walk or hop. Salamanders can walk or run on all four legs. Newts can crawl through water with their paddle-like tails. Which animal do you think would win in a race? Look inside to discover which of the ten amphibians in this book are super slow and which ones are really fast!


Kids can’t get enough animal facts! Starting with the slowest animal in each group — amphibians, birds, fish, mammals, and reptiles — readers will want to read to the end as the ten animals listed get faster and faster. All the books in this brand-new series brim with colorful photographs and fascinating facts about the featured animals´ body, diet and habitat. Short blocks of text entertain and explain why some animals are super slow while others are really fast!
