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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

I got this book, along with some others, for my 3-year-old son's birthday. The photos are varied and very nice looking. My son loved the book. I definitely recommend.

National Geographic Kids always has interesting books with stunning photography that kids will love and learn from. This addition Snakes! is particularly good because of the always wonderful Melissa Stewart, each of her non-fiction works is written in a way that is easy to understand, and attention-grabbing for young readers on up.
