Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Fluorescent orange, emerald green, sunlight yellow and highly patterned snakes fill the pages of this easy-to-read book. The pages are piled with flashy, close up, and graphic photos. Each page contains basic, but interesting information in short sentences geared toward youngsters who are beginning to read independently. This lever two reader contains fact bars that offer information such as a mambo snake can travel twelve miles per hour and the world's smallest snake, the lesser Antillean, was only discovered in 2001. New vocabulary is defined on the pages in a box aptly labeled "Words-s-s." Some fun-filled riddles are included and are displayed with the questions right side up and the answer upside down so readers turn the book over to get the answers. A simple picture glossary is included at the back. A fill-in-the-blank story for readers to complete, rounds out this book that is sure to draw the attention of young readers who like snakes.

My 6 year old likes the pictures and facts. The downside is that it is only 30+ pages.

K picked this book up from his school library. You get a lot of different information about different kinds of snakes. You learn about how they move, about super snakes their senses and a little bit more. There the pictures are realistic and go with what is being told to you. National Geographic did a great job with the information and the pictures. Me and K learned a little bit more about the different snakes that were told in this book.  This is a level two reader so it is great for those that can read as they can read it to themselves. But I think it is great for all school age children and for those that either love snakes or want to learn more about snakes. I see us buying this book to keep on our shelves.
