   Great book, vivid pictures, my son loved it
My son absolutely loves them, his mom said. He's also learning to read and he's enjoyed his other National Geographic Kids books so it was an easy decision to purchase this book, Melissa said. In "Snakes," Douglas Jackson writes, "the illusionist attempts to summon the beast from the dead." There are a lot of bright colors, interesting facts, and new vocabulary words to choose from. This was another great edition of the Harry Potter series, the experts say.

   informative and engaging book for new readers
There is something about snakes that makes my skin crawl, but so many kids are fascinated by them. A photo of the venomous snake is shown in this week's issue of The New Republic. Early is part of National Geographic's series for Readers, and combines clear information with stunning photographs. This book has all the necessary information, backed by clear, concise explanations. I particularly liked how the included author definitions of new words popped up on the front of the book. And, for example, I learned that scutes are the wide scales on the belly of a snake. The new words are set in eye-catching boxes on the pages that use them. The pictures are clearly labeled, often with arrows pointing to important points. Even toddlers will see the difference between a snake's scales and skin. And, of course, there are the pictures. It's just that I wish I could show you some of the inside photos. The two kids grabbed my attention and gave me the slithery willies, he said. And, by the way, I'm not a snake lover. There are many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many, that will be all over this book.

   ... has interesting books with stunning photography that kids will love and learn from
National Geographic Kids has always had interesting books with stunning photography that kids will love to learn from. The addition of these two species brings the total number of known snake species to 41. Each of Melissa Stewart's non-fiction works is written in a way that is easy to understand, and attention-grabbing for young readers on up. I learned so much about thiss extraterrestrial life, its inhabitants and how they live on this planet. !! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM! SCORM!

   Great book about snakes.
The boy picked up the book from his school library. But there are also a lot of different types of snakes. The pictures are realistic and go with what is being told to you. National Geographic did a great job with the information and the pictures, he said. This is a level two reader so it's great for those that can read as well as they can read themselves. I see us buying this book to keep on keeping on fighting, he said.

   Snakes
My granddaughter is 7 and she has a very good eye for snakes. What's so good about this one is that she can read it by herself or just look at the pictures, he said. It's just short enough to keep her attention and the pictures look like they could jump out of the book, she said. I will be buying more National Geographic Kids books in the future.

   Not for young kids.
Well, first of all, a little graphic for a 3 year old who loves reptiles when it comes to pictures of snakes eating rats.

   Basic book - eh
Thanks for the photos. But disappointed they label the vipers poisonous, rather than venomous. Nat Geo has added a new series of games called "Tak," which is available on demand. One child may be able to play with it, but the other may not.

   Lots of good information
I'm thrilled with the book, Beckham said. Although the information is not too complicated, the pictures are colorful and interesting.

A book of facts and photos about snakes. Young readers, not surprisingly, are drawn to snakes.

   2- and 4-yr-old great grandkids loved it!
The National Geographic Reader series has outstanding photography, is just right for youngsters, and is well worth its price. My Littles, 2 and 4 years old, couldn't put the reader down the day they got them, and kept going back to them over and over, studying the photography. I've purchased several of the readers, particularly on wildlife, and every one has been a hit with the youngsters, publisher William Morrow said.
