I (Don't) Like Snakes

author: Nicola Davies

illustrator: Luciano Lozano

series name:
Read and Wonder
This little girl has a problem. Her family doesn’t have dogs, or cats, or birds — they have snakes! And she really doesn’t like snakes. But maybe once she knows more, she will start to like snakes a little . . . or even a lot. Packed with snake trivia, this clever story includes realistic illustrations and simple explanations of snake behavior sure to make even slither-phobic readers shed their misconceptions about these fascinating reptiles. Back matter includes a note about snakes, a bibliography, and an index.
“The facts are captivating. . . . The protagonist isn’t the only one who will find snakes spellbinding by the end.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
