The animals slither and glide right off the page in Kingfisher Readers L1: Snakes Alive! by Louise P. Caroll, an up-close look at the world of snakes. All the fascinating aspects of the snake are covered, from the elegant scales on their body to the way they move, what they eat, how they have their babies, and how they protect themselves. The beautiful photography highlights the amazing diversity of snakes and works seamlessly with the text to draw the reader in. New words are introduced throughout—fang, rattle, slither— and a glossary at the end helps reinforce the meanings.
