I (Don’t) Like Snakes, by Nicola Davies

One of Ivy’s classmates has a couple of pet snakes at home and this last term she brought the snakes into the classroom for the kids to see. The class spent a week talking and learning about snakes, and Ivy came home telling me all sorts of interesting facts. I was actually surprised by how interested she was on the topic of snakes!

So when I saw this new book, I (Don’t) Like Snakes  written by award winning zoologist Nicola Davies and illustrated by the talented Luciano Lozano, I knew I had to get it for her. It’s a really great book which combines a sweet narrative about a girl who hates snakes, with loads of interesting facts. A super clever and really appealing way to be both educational and fun!

A great book for kids in the 3-8 year range (though my 10-year-old enjoyed reading it too!). The book is just out and available from Amazon (UK and US).

So nice to hear 😊 another sweet book about snakes which I’m sure you know is ‘Crictor’ by Tomi Ungerer. Not sure how factually correct it is though!! 😘xx
