I have a granddaughter that is 7 and loves snake books. What's so good about this one is that she can read it by herself or just look at the
pictures. It's just short enough to keep her attention and the pictures
look like they could jump out of the book. I will be buying her more National Geographic Kids books in the future.

There is something about snakes that certainly makes my skin crawl, but so many kids are fascinated by them. Snakes! is part of National Geographic's series for Early Readers, and combines clear information with stunning photographs. This book has detailed information, supported by clear, concise explanations. I particularly liked how the author included definitions of new words right on the page. For example, I learned that scutes are the "wide scales on the belly of a snake." New words are set in eye-catching boxes on the pages that use them. In addition, the pictures are clearly labeled, often with arrows pointing out important points. Kids will clearly see the difference between a snakes' scales and skin.

But best of all, are the pictures. I just wish I could show you some of the inside photos. They grabbed my attention, and give me the slithery willies. But then, I'm not a snake lover. I know many little kids that will be all over this book.

My 6 year old loves the pictures. They are beautiful. The science facts are excellent, adding a few we didn't know. The best bit, though, is the silly riddles and puns at the top of half the pages. Really appeals to this age's sense of humor.
