5.0 out of 5 stars informative and engaging book for new readers, October 11, 2009
This review is from: National Geographic Readers: Snakes! (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.
