a different footprint

In "Whose Feet are These?" I wrote about geckos having 'sticky' feet, which seemed a good way to describe gecko feet for young children. But how exactly are geckos' feet sticky? Here's a photo of the foot of a common or raukawa gecko, doesn't it look amazing!

I'm looking forward to being the special guest at the Porirua Library's school holiday event. On April 19 I'll be visiting 3 of the branches to read from my books and have some fun making crafts. I'll be sharing "Whose Beak is This?" and "Whose Feet are These?" and making sticky-footed geckos and kiwi book corners.

Kākā play a role in my book 'Whose Beak is This?' illustrated by Fraser Williamson. To celebrate its publication Fraser created a super kākā mask. Print it out on A3 paper to fit a child's face. See the instructions below.
