I Don抰 Like Snakes

by Nicola Davies
Illustrated by Luciano Lozano

Published by Candlewick Press, 2015
25 pages
ISBN: 978𢠩63678319

Ages 59

When her puzzled, snake-loving family asks a young girl why she doesn抰 like snakes, she points out that snakes slither and have 搒limy, scaly skin and 揻licky tongues. They also stare. In response to these and other points, her dad, mom, and brother have an explanation梐nd sometimes a correction (e.g., snakes aren抰 slimy; their skin is dry)梕xpanding the girl抯 understanding of and appreciation for snakes. This picture book deftly blends the appealing fictional story and its blithe illustration style with factual text and images about snake biology and behavior. A brief bibliography and an index conclude the volume.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
