Go, Green Gecko! by Gay Hay; illustrated by Margaret Tolland. 2017. Published by Starfish Bay Publishing.
Brief summary: Told in lyrical verse, a green gecko goes through its day from sitting in the rata trees eating flies and drinking nectar to falling down to ferns on the ground and eating butterflies and drinking the morning dew. It watches for dangers as it continues running on boulders eating a beetle and over old rotten logs finding a spider. The reader will continue learning about the gecko’s habitat along with its food sources and enemies.
Comments: The paintings are vibrant and full with a fold out revealing the gecko’s enemy. There is a “take a closer look” section in the back with interesting green gecko facts. This is a narrative nonfiction book but could also be placed in the easy section of the library.
