You know you love your child when you say "Yes!"  to reviewing a book about snakes, knowing good and well that you have no desire what so ever to look at that book, but you want to, because you know that it is something that they would enjoy!  
When I first saw the cover of Snakeopedia, I was immediately thinking that this was NOT a book for me.. And yes, I was correct... But - if you have someone that is eager to learn about snakes (or if you want it around as a reference book)  then this is a book for you!

This book is actually very interesting.  Yes, I will admit that...
The images are FANTASTIC... and the information throughout is very cool to know.  I will say that I am not a snake fan.. have never been a snake fan and will never be one either, but this was full of amazing photographs and each 2 page spread also has plenty of text boxes to give you all you want to know!
This would be a great addition to any library and I am glad that it is now part of ours!

  1. I actually know a lot about them. I went to a snake convention once. It was interesting.

  2. I used to volunteer at a place in Florida (for a class) and they gave me the option to take care of the snake cages or the opossum as one of my duties. I picked the o'possum. ;) I bet there is a ton to learn about them though (snakes).
