Snakes by Valerie Bodden


Snakes by Valerie Bodden

Find out all about one of the world's most amazing animals - the snake! Snakes that bite, snakes that squeeze, snakes that swim, snakes that climb trees. Find out how snakes eat their dinner and what they use their tongues for. Snakes are one of the world's most iconic reptiles and a favourite with children. These beautiful but deadly creatures have a fearsome reputation - it's no wonder many people are so scared of them! Huge, vibrant pictures combined with simple, factual text really bring these creatures to life and will introduce young children to some of the main facts and features that make snakes so special. At the end of the book, a short story from Africa introduces the idea of animals in mythology and storytelling. Snakes is part of the series Animals Are Amazing - a big picture introduction to some brilliant animals for children aged 5-7 / KS1.
