Gail Gibbons' books are always informative and capture the readers' attention. This one did not disappoint. The students in grade 1 that I read the book to were engaged in the activity and responded to the story. They gained new information of snakes. This was a good book because it did not just provide information to the students that they already knew but expanded their knowledge. For example, the author does write that the snakes slither and have no legs, but she goes further and describes the different ways a snake moves.
