Everything You Need To Know About Snakes and Other Scaly Reptiles
This is one of the best books about snakes (along with the other books featured this week). Kids will be drawn in right from the start by the alarming monster snake, who snacked on giant tortoises. From there, they'll discover lots more about snakes, helped by an attractive layout, lively text, and terrific photos and diagrams. Standout pages include the picture of a snake's insides, close-ups of different scary fangs, and the hide-and-seek spread of chameleons and geckos. Absolutely amazing!
