Snakes! There's something deliciously creepy about snakes, which this book uses to full advantage. But it will also encourage children to see the beauty of these creatures. Snakes have some outstandingly odd abilities having to do with everything from the tip of their forked tongues to the rattles some of them have in their tails. All this and more will be shared with our readers. There are superlatives, jokes, and best of all, the incredible photographs available only from National Geographic. The cover also makes use of the NG Kids logo, matching the logo used on NG Kids magazine with a subscriber base of 1.3 million. Books are levelled and presented to parents, teachers, and librarians with a letter from an expert in the field of reading and education.
