Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Did you know that some snakes can go up to one year without additional food or drink? Inside this book about different varieties of snakes, readers will find more cool facts and why people like to stay away from snakes. The outstanding photographs and creative text draws the reader into the real world of snakes. Interesting facts about how they live include the fact that twenty per cent of the world contains their own personal sandbox habitat called the desert. Snakes can also help the environment by eating rodents that destroy farmer's crops. Yellow highlighted vocabulary words and a glossary in the back help young readers to define new words not understood by context clues. The left side of some of the pages has a section called "fright bite" which gives additional amazing information that most people would not know. Do not miss the table of contents at the front of the book because it has a quick reference to what interests the reader most. This book can help write reports or simply entertain those of us who like or hate snakes. The low cost makes it an even better buy for a personal library. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
