Do You Like Snakes?

Geri, Columbine Library

Snakes are fascinating animals. There's lots to learn about them, and you can even keep some of them as pets! 

One book about snakes that's fun to read is 100 Things You Should Know about Snakes.

If you have ever wanted to own a pet snake, you might like to read a story about a boy who wants to get a snake. In the chapter book Hiss-s-s-s! by Eric A. Kimmel, Omar gets a corn snake for a pet, but his mother is deathly afraid of snakes.  Find out what happens when his new pet snake gets lost in the house.

To check out other great books about snakes at your library, just ask a librarian.
