Three-year-old C has been fascinated by snakes this summer. We visited Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC on our way to the beach and she could have spent hours in the reptile house looking at all the snakes including two enormous anacondas and some beautiful tree boas. On a recent trip to the library, she asked for books about snakes, and we found It’s Best to Leave a Snake Alone by Allan Fowler, a volume in the Rookie Read-About Science series.
This title is perfect for an early reader or for a preschooler to listen to or for an early reader to read to an interested preschooler The words are simple and the text is large with a few sentences per page and there are plenty of exciting photographs. Readers learn about snakes’ habitat, diet, skin, and facts about common poisonous snakes.
Sadly, this title is out of print but our library owns many of the books in this series and numerous used copies are available.
This week’s Non-Fiction Monday Round-up is at Abby the Librarian.
