Book Description

Bestselling children’s author Kay de Silva presents “Snakes”. The book uses captivating illustrations and carefully chosen words to teach children about "the farmer’s friend”.

This series is known as one of the most beautiful on the kindle. The pictures look great even in black and white and are excellent on the full color kindle. The description in the large text beneath is simple enough for early readers or for a parent to guide a child through.

There are also picture captions, which provides more information to talk about with your child. Alternatively, a child of any age (even the child in you) can just look at the images and appreciate its beauty.

This book depicts the wonder of the world of Snakes in all its glory. Children are given a well-rounded understanding of this beautiful reptile: its anatomy, feeding habits and behavior. The following Snakes are featured:
* The magnificent Anaconda
* The fearsome Boa Constrictor
* The majestic Cobra
* The gentle Corn Snake
* The social Garter
* The fierce Inland Taipan
* The awesome Python
* The ominous Rattlesnake
* The stealthy Sea Snake

I enjoyed compiling this book. I even learned a few things along the way. Perhaps you will too.

Get this book at this SPECIAL PRICE exclusive to the Amazon Store.

*** Your child will love it - this is guaranteed.***

3.0 out of 5 stars Sssssssorry, but thissss one needssss editing October 23, 2013
By POIA
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This little book about snakes contains some very nice photos coupled with short and, in many cases, poorly written text. I hope parents are reading this to their children correctly and not verbatim. Perhaps the author should employ an editor before she attempts to "teach" children about snakes with good pictures and bad english/grammar. Need an example? This is from the Description and contains an error in each of the two sentences in this paragraph: "There are also picture captions, which provides more information to talk about with your child. Alternatively, a child of any age (even the child in you) can just look at the images and appreciate its beauty". Okay, "captions" don't "provides", they PROVIDE and since "images" are the object, you appreciate THEIR beauty, not "its". Sorry, but editing is an important part of producing a finished product, especially when children are the intended audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a Detailed Animal Fact Book... December 6, 2012
By 4Nbahu
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Recently I have been looking at many of the "free" animal books. While I still wish the captioned photographs were larger, I believe the detail of the snake trivia more than makes up for the medium size of the photos.

This book has a clickable table of contents, which makes finding the pages easy. The descriptions of the various topics is fairly in depth for this type of book. (Just enough to explain the topic, without so much detail as to bore a young child.) I learned that molting was not because the skin was too small and why some snakes form snake balls.

The crisp clear color photographs show a large variety of snakes and are captioned.

The usual ending of encouraging protecting the topic of the book is here, but also gives a good reason for protecting, which is normally not included (at least in the books I have seen). I didn't realize how important snakes could be for farmers.

I HIGHLY recommend this book on Snakes..

This book covers a lot of the snakes, and it's a great read for kids who want to learn more about snakes. The images in the book are really well done and clear, and the "fun facts" are very interesting.

I recommend this one!
