Hi to everyone. We have been away on holidays but now
Marvin is back at school again. He says that he likes being back at school
because he gets to make lots of new friends.
Marvin found a great magazine in his school library,
which tells you lots about different types of animals. He found out that
although some animals look very similar they are not the same. For example
all toads are frogs, but not all frogs are toads. Wow, that sounds
confusing! You could say that a toad is just a certain kind of frog. Instead
of its skin being smooth and slippery, a toad’s skin is usually dry and
bumpy. Also, instead of having long back legs that are great for jumping and
leaping, a toad has short back legs for walking and hopping. Be careful if
you see a toad and you should never pick them up. When a toad feels
threatened (feels like it is in danger) it can spit poison from its mouth
and this can make you sick. If it gets into your eye, it can make you blind!
If you know any interesting facts about animals, write to
Marvin and tell him. You can send your letters to:
